I studied engineering physics at U.C. Berkeley, spent time in the aerospace and visual effects industries, and now create software for a leading IT company. Before all that I spent 2 years in the U.S. Peace Corps, teaching math in French to junior high kids in Kembe, Central African Republic. I have buried one husband, am madly in love with another, have 3 dogs, and love to travel. I am an ardent defender of free speech and card-carrying member of the ACLU. I am a native speaker of English, fluent in French and German, studied 2 years' Latin and Japanese, 1 year Chinese, and can get by in Sango. Feel free to post a reply in any of the above languages, especially Sango: Mbï bara âzo kûê tî Bêafrîka. Töngana mbênî zo ayê tî tokwa na mbï kêtê mbëtï na yângâ tî Sängö, fadë yê sô anzere na mbï mîngi!
