I am middle aged Norwegian woman, currently residing in the Midwest with husband and son. I am a Senior SW engineer employed at a major aerospace company. I am currently working as a sisplays system Agile product owner for a coast guard helicopter, which is pretty cool. I started painting about 30 years ago when hubby and I used to play D&D. I didn't paint at all for years, until I started up again a few years back. Even when we didn't play or paint we continued to buy minis, so our collection is quite extensive. My other hobbies are PC games (esp MMORPGs and turn-based strategy games), movies, reading, knitting and music ( I play flute and oboe in a couple of local concert bands).
