Born and raised in Santa Barbara. After high school, I attended the U. S. Naval Academy but decided that the military life was not for me. I got a B.S. in Computer Science at UCSB. After UCSB, I decided I wanted to work on rockets and satellites. So moved, to Long Beach in 2005 and got an M.S. in Aerospace Engineering from CSULB. After getting my M.S., I've been working in the aerospace community since 2008.
As for personal interest, I've been playing golf since junior high and continue to this day. Being from Santa Barbara, I'm also an avid wine connoisseur. I enjoy visiting the local wineries along the urban wine trail within the city limits of Santa Barbara as well as visiting the vineyards in Santa Ynez, Lompoc, and Los Olivos. In particular, I enjoy Carr, Palmina, Deep Sea Wineries. I've been attending the California Wine Festival in Santa Barbara and Orange County just about every year. In 2009, I got talked into learning to snowboard. I've been going to Mammoth several times a year ever since. In addition, I've gone the last two years to Telluride, Colorado with plans to be back next year.
Besides, work, golf, snowboarding, and wine, I also enjoy hanging out with my friends at local restaurants, bars, poker nights, or just about any collegiate or professional sporting event. I've done extensive traveling around; Asia, Europe, the Caribbean, and the much of the U.S. I have an tremendous appetite for knowledge both inside and outside of my fields of expertise.
I'm looking for a career oriented woman with a passion for life, a thirst for knowledge, and a sense for adventure!
