BIOI was born in Yakima, Washington, USA, 9/30/1946 and live in Los Angeles, California, where I play with fractals, manage my husband, composer John Mitchell, and do a little political blogging. I went to Stanford, got a degree in Spanish, and after some wild and crazy years used it to get a job as a bilingual teacher. Also did a year of grad study at UCLA, and was a T.A. teaching beginning Spanish to undergraduates. I've studied classical voice and piano, and performed the roles of Turandot, Eboli, Leonora (Il Trovatore), and La Gioconda, all of them really hideously, in community opera productions.
I bought my first computer in July 2000, had never used one. (Kindergarten teachers in the hood didn't have them at the time.) Now I maintain a big website, and in 2003 discovered fractals. It is a kind of art, in many ways similar to photography, that suits my nature; I need structure.
