Who am I? Good question. Lover of all things goofy. Nature photographer. Writer. Recovering chocoholic. (Some days not so recovering.) A realistic idealist. (Or is that an idealistic realist?) Explorer of other cultures, languages, and countries. Person Who Plays with Animals. (Especially hamsters. Or cats. I really like cats. Or dogs. OK. Just about any animal. No snakes. Or rats. For some reason, I just couldn’t get into rats. But I digress. Where was I? Oh yes, who am I?)
A Hoosier who became an ex-pat who became a re-pat. After leaving academia where I studied the early Chinese religions of Daoism and Buddhism, I relocated to another country: Silicon Valley. Following years of field work in localization and technical editing (and the study of the techie in their self-proclaimed native habitat), I recently returned to the Motherland to live among the usually polite (even when you poke them) Hoosiers.
I have morphed into a technical writer, writing documentation at a software company in Indiana. My current gig brings together my innate curiosity, love of languages (human and computer), and years of learning tools and technologies for content creation and management. As Lincoln remarked, “I will prepare and someday my chance will come.” My chance is here it seems.
Life is a journey, or perhaps more aptly, a series of road trips. What will I experience in this leg of the trip? I cannot see what is around the bend, but I bet it is something exciting.
