Imagine you are nine years old. Your class has been assigned to write about autumn. What do you do?
Me? I visualized fallen leaves that trees had sowed on a dirt path. A riot of gold and russet leaves, randomly assembled, crunched under my footsteps. Some of the leaves had fallen prematurely, their still green bodies only half-eaten by rust. They had started to decompose and their earthy smell filled the air.
I put it down on paper, got an A+, and got hooked into storytelling.
A successful 15-year software and IT services marketing career
At Middlesex University Business School in London, England, I was drawn to marketing because it offered a chance to use my creativity. My ear for words and eye for design served me well in marketing communications. A self-confessed Apple fan, I am also at ease with complex technologies, as evidenced by my work in product marketing at international software companies.
I enjoy collaborating with people of different backgrounds and nationalities, an opportunity afforded by working with multinational companies such as Adobe, Yahoo!, VMware or Alfresco. Taking it a step further, I traveled around-the-world for a year and narrated my encounters in my memoir, Riding the Asian Dragon: Extraordinary Lives of Ordinary People. My book was praised by Kirkus Review.
Today, I live in Washington, D.C., with my husband.
