Soon I’ll be marking my 5-year anniversary as an ensemble member with Unexpected Productions. It’s been quite a journey – when I started, I couldn’t imagine ever holding a candle to the veteran performers with decades of experience with the troupe.
My first improv training, as it was, came in the form [...]
I haven’t spoken about it formally here, but I’m honored to be part of one of the featured mentorship pairings in the Huffington Post’s women in STEM mentoring initiative. As part of that relationship, we were asked to provide an intro to user experience design for folks following the program.
“We are the people [...]
March is definitely coming in like a lion for me – many performances and appearances in the next 14 days, including several appearances at the Emerald City Comicon. Here’s where to find me:
SATURDAY MARCH 2nd:
Back when I worked at Electronic Arts, one unfortunate and apparently logic-impaired soul was seeking information about the URL for our 401K plan with Charles Schwab. There are a number of ways one might get this information… internal websites, emailing HR, asking a coworker. Or the reams of paperwork they’d foist on us during every [...]
During the month of January, four different gentlemen made comments about having difficulty recognizing me due to my varying hairstyles.
“I was looking for you from the back of the theatre but since your hair is always different I couldn’t find you.”
“When we continue meetings over multiple days, it would help if everyone wore [...]
I never imagined that getting married would be such a communal experience.
I’ve never been big into the wedding circuit. To be honest, I’ve not even been to that many weddings. Many of my friends got married before I knew them, or I wasn’t close with them yet when their marriages occurred. I’ve been a [...]
2012 was a crazy year for me, aside from blogging where I failed a bit in the second half of the year. As is tradition, a look back at what happened:
Productions I Appeared In:
The Underpants (Louise)
Where No Man Has Gone Before (Nurse Chapel)
The Journal (Ruth/Bri/Mom/etc)
I’ve posted before about my adventures with hemachromatosis, and my negative experiences with the Puget Sound Blood Center. Things since the last post hadn’t improved tremendously, but I still went (out of my way) to perform my therapeutic phlebotomies there since it was contributing healthy blood to the public blood supply.
For most of my gaming life, I was a Nintendo girl (and a PC girl, but those are other stories.) Our first real gaming console was the Atari 2600, which was loved but ultimately met an untimely demise when my brothers left it on for too long. Alas, poor Atari. We hardly knew ye.
On Wednesday, I had the unique experience of teaching 110 high school girls an intro to interaction design workshop. Officially entitled “Making the World Easier With Interaction Design”, this was a course I built from scratch after offering to teach the subject at Microsoft’s annual Digigirlz Tech Camp. It’s a free weeklong program open [...]
