I spend my days writing php, html, javascript, and css. I spend enough time in Terminal that it could be my vacation home. And I love all sorts of techie gadgets. I’m High Tech.

I grew up in a small town. I love NASCAR. I love country music. And I’ve got a (not so secret) thing for cowboys. I’m a Redneck.

I’m sensitive. I’m emotional. I’m a Woman.

Welcome to my home on the web. Please take off your boots and put your ringer on silent.
