The people. We all work hard to create the best possible software with the best possible technical support. Working with a dedicated, supportive team makes such a huge difference.

4.What is your favorite Golden Software memory?

My favorite memory is more of a collection of memories than any single one. In my first three years at Golden Software I worked in the office, before moving home to work remotely. The office was a fun place to be! Everyone was working together, sharing ideas and working on problems together, sometimes goofing off...I remember laughing a lot. It was a fun time.

5.Where are you from?

San Francisco Bay Area, California

6.What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

We live in a beautiful area, and I really enjoy getting out on the weekends, camping and hiking. Now that our children are out of the toddler phase, we are also going to try backpacking again. I also enjoy reading and seeing new places. My next projects are designing a large producing vegetable garden for our yard and coming up with a travel plan for next year.

7.What has been the most exciting thing you’ve done in the past year?

Sky diving. It is something I've always wanted to try and I finally gave it a go. It was so much fun!
