HOME -- RIOT Software -- Resume -- Writer -- Past -- Future

Part of my past includes OLD blogs known as G.I.R.L. (Geek In Real Life) and Wacky Robot. Yeah, they're gone. Which is why you've found yourself on this page called "The Past."
The new blog is at RIOT Software ( http://riotsw.com/blog ).

In my past entrepreneurial life, I started and ran a retail paint-your-own-pottery studio in Ashburn, VA. Just before opening the store in 2002, I'd quit my engineering career to do this. In 2004, I realized that at heart, I was a geeky engineer so I went back to that and for the next 3 years held both my full-time "day job" and ran/managed the store.

The full accounting of my business is now summed up in two books that should be read by anyone planning on taking a similiar path:

Please read them. Please write a (positive) review on Amazon! And I'd love to hear what people think or if there are other questions I could answer.
