BIOGRAPHY:

  • Grew up interested in space and decided she wanted to be a rocket scientist.
  • Her first job had to do with programming and launching satellites into space.
  • Her hobby had always been writing, and over time, she started enjoying that more than she enjoyed her satellite communications job.
  • Eventually decided to drop everything else and focus on her writing.
  • Says, "before I was doing communications in outer space; now I'm doing communications right here on Earth."
  • Everyone around her was single, wishing there was somewhere they could meet people that wasn't just a club and bar scene.
  • Instead of going to write for Cosmo or Vogue, she decided to take her intimate knowledge of a local problem and build her own solution.
  • Started One2One Living, a magazine that profiles professional singles and displays hundreds of personal ads.
