Hi, I'm Abby, also known as Lina (my middle name); just depends on my mood.

I live in Portland, OR with my wife Jenn. We have three cats and a ton of vegetables and flowers in our garden, it's a pretty great place for us.

I work on software, I have worked as a systems engineer, a network engineer, a software engineer, and more. I love working on tough data problems and diagnosing and fixing performance bottlenecks. I also love building teams and enabling them to solve tough problems.

I study for fun. Topics include languages (currently at various levels of proficiency with German, Spanish, Portuguese, Esperanto, and Arabic), math (I'm really fascinated by the math behind good crypto and endeavoring to learn it), and low level programming info. I like to take everything apart and put it back together again once I figure out how it works.
