My name is Elizabeth but please call me Lisa.
My formal education includes an associate degree in art and dropping out of a bachelor program in religion.
After drawing underground comics in the 70s, I pioneered using the Macintosh for information graphics at newspapers in the 80s.
I began the 90s by getting married, having a child and buying a home. During that decade I engineered or managed various software projects including Macromind Director, Adobe Illustrator and Netscape Navigator.
I retired from The Fruit Company in 2012 and began writing a blog, appearing on various podcasts and developing video transcoding software.
On January 26, 2023, I finally admitted to myself that I’m transgender. And on March 23 of that year began medical transition to female.
My pronouns are she/her.
I still live in the California Bay Area and I’m still a massive nerd. That hasn’t changed and probably never will.
