Tell us one fun and interesting fact about yourself!

Am currently taking a Coursera class on the history of the internet and was reminded of my first encounter with it back in the late 80's at Brooklyn College where I accessed some scientific journals via a terminal that connected by placing the receiver (picture a handset with round mouth and ear sections connected by a curved bar) into a molded 'thing' of the opposite shape, which then communicated with sounds similar to a fax machine.


A marketing manager, as well as amateur photographer and graphic designer, I have been wading in the shallow end of the front end pool for a few years, ready to go into deeper waters!
