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."
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.
