Welcome!

I am not that active on social media. Some people think that’s super cool and confident. Others, like my 20-year-old sister, think it’s lame not to share what matters to me. Mostly it is because I am an old person trapped in a millennial’s body.

So this is the middle ground…where I share some stuff from my professional life. The pictures are hazy because I was not thinking much about posting when I took them. Sorry!
