By day, I am a Visual Database Engineer. By night? I have lots of interests. I am a lampworker (or flameworker) – I melt glass and form art objects using a bench mounted torch. I design and sew embroidered designs on my beloved sewing machine. I hike with my family, and right about the beginning of this blog, we discovered geocaching. I am a mom. I have one dog, one cat, and lots of fish. Like I said – lots of interests.
