In 1996 I got two opportunities that changed my future; one was an internship at a local marketing group and the second was to be in the first web coding class at my school. I went on to work at the marketing group and learn about the world of print design, interactive design and web design.
I began designing and developing sites for clients in 1998 and began working in the field professionally in 2000. I currently work Cierant Corporation as an interactive media specialist.
In my free time, I try to get out and take photos when ever possible. I’ve rekindled a love of shooting film and printing in a dark room. I also knit sporadically and enjoy going on walks with Craig.
I am forever and humbly grateful to my husband, Craig, who has always been supportive of all my ventures and dreams.
About This Site
The title of the blog came from a conversation Craig and I were having and I said, “I really feel like I’m always trying to find the road not taken. I do everything backwards from the rest of the world”, and so it stuck.
Thus far, this site has been a meandering ramble of ideas in my head, vacation photos, videos and photos I wanted to share with others. I’d like to add more consistancy and organization to it, which is my goal going forward.
I use a 15″ MacBook Pro running OS X 10.5. I recently upgraded the HD to a 500GB Western Digital 7200rpm drive as well as maxing out the RAM to 4GB. I use an iPhone 3G as my cell phone, ipod, organizer and gps. In my home office I have a 1TB LaCie Big Disk, a 250GB LaCie Big Disk, a 23″ Apple Cinema Display and Wacom tablet. I still have my original Harmon Kardon sound sticks, although I seem to have blown the tweeter on them, a replacement is on order.
I shoot my photos primarily with a Canon Rebel XTi. In the camera bag with it are a Canon Rebel G 35mm film camera, a Diana F+ film camera, and a Canon SD550. Lenses, I have a Canon 50mm 1.8, Canon 100-300mm, Canon 18-55mm, Canon 28-100mm.
