About me


I am a proud native Californian and have been a film buff for as long as I can remember.  Cat lover.  I'm a good cook and a pretty decent baker (still lousy pie crust maker despite trying hundreds of "no fail" pie crusts).  I'm a lover of opera and classical music who also loves Patsy Cline.  Was a preemie baby and am a textbook procrastinator. By day, I earn my keep doing good works in the world of patents.


One of the great joys in undertaking any project is the joy of research.  I love it!  This becomes a bit of an excuse because it takes me so long to get my projects done; I keep finding more good stuff.
