Who Am I?

As a graduate of Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida, I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Animation with rigging as my discipline of choice.  As a programmer, rigging appealed to my technical side as well as my creative side.  Or that could just be my Gemini sides.

Prior to returning to school, I worked as a programmer for Georgia Farm Bureau, IKON Office Solutions and Central Georgia Technical College’s Office of Adult Literacy.  At the college, I designed an automated student tracking system to collect GED data for the state.  It made the paperwork easier and less time consuming for the teachers.  Much to their relief.

Around this time, I became a member of the Moose Lodge’s Women of the Moose in Warner Robins, Georgia.  My first year, I was asked to be chairman of the Youth of the Moose.  I worked with the men's chairman of the youth to organize a variety of activities for kids of all ages.  I also joined the lodge’s motorcycle club.  Oh, the joy of having the wind blow through your hair, trying to avoid any flying insects and getting sunburned from an all day ride.  Besides bike rides, the group hosted an annual toy run to provide Christmas gifts for local families.  They also did the cooking for the annual Veteran’s Day celebration at the local VA Hospital.

I continue to develop my knowledge of Python and am looking forward to working with industry professionals.
