Bio: I am 28 years old, and I wear a lot of hats. By day I work in a technical library. By night, I like to joke that I'm a superhero in training. I practice and teach Western European swordsmanship, karate and kickboxing as well as self-defense. I am pursuing the ACE personal trainer certfcate and am in the process of creating a training business. I'm also working on a book about women in martial arts among other projects.

This website is an experiment. I expect to be creating a business site soon and we'll go from there. For now, anyone who is interested can check here to find out what I'm up to.
