Bio

Learning Disabled woman who’s gone back to. college after being shot down in her computer science degree in the 90s. Tech genius, lover of good poetry and music (all music), admirer of reason and justice.. I hate when things go wrong but especially when it’s to the wrong person, my politics and sense of justice are extraordinarily intersectional and heavily guided by my rebellion against ableism. I am in a complicated headset as a trans non-binary woman. I don’t, and in many cases won’t fit into your narrative.

Contrary to popular belief I’m nothing to scuff at. Regardless of my lack of degree i am a certified Java developer 3 times over (IBM, Sun, and Microsoft). I am certified in SQL by both IBM and Oracle. I am VLSI (Very Large Scale systems Integration) certified by IBM , which is just a fancy way of saying i’m net+ certified when handling connections over very large distances (even continents), I am IBM COBOL II certified (up to modern post 2k Object Oriented), I am a forward thinker in terms of programming and systems engineering and an early adopter of Object Oriented theory and am one of the initial employers of the popular dohnut model used to explain OOP. Although I have not formally taught I have individually instructed and tutored more than 35 students in BASIC, COBOL Pascal, C/C++, Ada, and several variants of machine language. You would figure i would be a streaming success. Alas I am also the victim of domestic assault/violence, sexual violence, peer/lateral violence, and disability (icluding ableism). Bringing me through a very tumultuous childhood and equally discouraging young adulthood.

I am highly intersectional and very interested in civic engagement, social justice, and equality and equity for all.

I am currently pursuing my BS in legal studies pursuant to a degree in Law. I won’t kid myself that I’m walking out to a long illustrious career, but i am alright with that. I am here to accomplished a more focused and enlightened future.

More to come.
