My best job was at Ask Jeeves (also known as Ask.com). I was hired by founder and friend David Warthen to help develop the database and web site. Later, I was the "Voice of Jeeves" as their only customer service person, answering questions via email.  I worked there until the end of 2000 when the company had financial problems and laid off 1/4 of their workers.

I started my own company while I was at Ask Jeeves, The TV MegaSite, Inc.  I enjoy working at home. It has lots of perks like getting free DVD's and letting me interview TV actors, writers, directors and producers!

When we lived in Hawaii, I had a second job as a professional singer a local rock band. It was a lot of fun. It was called the All Natural Band, and we did oldies from mostly the 50's and 60's.  Then some of the members had a falling out and the band sort of fell apart. I started taking guitar lessons in September 2015 until we left Hawaii June 2106 That was great and I got to sing and play two songs at the Hard Rock in Waikiki with my teacher and his band (other students performed, too). I plan to keep up with the guitar and singing.  Hopefully one day I'll try again with a band.  You can see some of my songs by myself, with the band, and in concert in my YouTube channel.  Also, check out my Music History.

Personal history: The first 25 years of my life were not great, but the last 25 have been wonderful!

My family was very poor when I was growing up. My dad was an alcoholic that was seldom around. My mom died when I was 10. I was in a foster home during my teen years, and then I was on food stamps for a while after I moved out on my own.  I married my high school sweetheart, David, in 1982.  We moved to New York for college then.

Notable: My family helped start the San Diego Comic-Con in 1970, which is now a huge media event. My three brothers were on the original committees and my mom helped type up the first program.

I come from a dysfunctional family of scifi and comic book geeks. I'm a direct person but have learned over time, thanks to my husband and some maturity, to have better social skills.  Lately I've realized that I argue too much on Facebook, so I'm trying to be less argumentative. :)

Hobbies: Singing, webpage-making,  karaoke, guitar playing, collecting, reading, watching TV and movies, traveling, drawing and more.  Singing is my passion! I've been online since 94 and I've been singing since childhood (plus I had many years of voice lessons). I've sung in many choirs and done tons of karaoke, and have wanted for years to join a rock band, which I did for a while!

What I do:  I spend a lot of time on the computer - mostly working on my sites, answering email and social network. I don't have a lot of time to edit suzann.com. I am usually working on The TV MegaSite.

I try to walk or go to the gym.  We  travel quite often for fun and for his work conferences. 

Heatlh: I am diabetic; I have IBS, many allergies, a bad back (2 herniated disks) and RLS.  Perpetually dieting! I lost 25 lbs. in 2008 and kept most of it off...more to go!

My regular Blog is updated weekly. I usually post quite often/daily on Facebook and Twitter.
