About Me

Patulous and me with my trusty HP laptop where I 'do' all of my work. I feature these in my youtube - haul video!

My colorful banner showcasing one of the beautiful illustrations from Patulous, The DIfferent Caterpillar.  In this scene, Patulous is enjoying friends: Gabriella, the great grasshopper, Sammy, the slow but smart snail, and Lily the lighthearted ladybug.

March 2010, representing HP Hilltoppers, I placed first in Toastmasters Area contest with my inspirational message, "It's Our Choices.'  I went on to compete in our division competition which was crazy good. The Google competitor came in first (I think it was his exemplary  use of onomoatopoeias). I placed second, and the competitor from Stanford placed third.
