I live in Los Gatos, California and work in north San Jose at a scientific instrumentation company. I work in labs testing instruments, analyzing samples and checking the software that controls the instruments and processes the samples (we are all a bunch of nerds!). I love the outdoors - trees make me happy! Also, I am a big fan of all sorts of pets and animals and have 1 pet cat. I was born and raised in California and grew up in rural areas during my childhood and did not return after going to university. I am a fairly low key personality, but am prone to the occasional opinionated rant once I get to know someone.
