My Bio

My husband and I are originally from NYC and have lived in Henrietta, NY for over 30 years. We have three children; two boys  and a girl. We also have two grandsons ages 13 and 7. To complete our household there is the  cat, Nala who turned 17 in October. Although during part of our childhood my DH and I lived 5 city blocks from each other we didn't meet until we were in our early thirties in Rochester, NY. Although we are different in many ways  we love each other dearly and  have been married for almost 30 years. I’m a Professor of computing at a local university and I spend my time outside of work with my family, church, and doing different types of needlework. I am a member of my local ANG  chapter.       

My Occupation

Networking, Security, and Systems Administration (Information Technology) Professor

Things I like to do

I love to cross stitch, needlepoint and read (mysteries, fantasy,historical fiction, and chick lit). I decided to learn how to knit this year and took a beginners class in February of 2010. I love to listen to music and watch movies especially older ones. I like classical music, romantic ballad singers like Johnny Mathis, Nat King Cole, and Bing Crosby and more modern instrumental music like Yanni and YoYoMa. My movie tastes are varied ranging from old Cary Grant movies to Indiana Jones to Lord of the Rings. I like both romantic movies and adventure movies. I also like to dance especially with my DH. I prefer the Latin dances since it is what I grew up with but like disco type dancing too.
