About Sarah

As the title of my blog would imply, my name is Sarah Tyler.

I am a computer geek. I’ve been on the net tinkering with JavaScript and HTML since early ’96, but didn’t really get into computing until ’99. I like to write code that writes code. I’m an applications kind of gal, with a mathematical and statistics background who codes on the weekends for fun. Or at least I did before I became a mom and lost all semblance of free time. I earned my undergraduate degree in computer science from Carnegie Mellon University, and my PhD from the University of California, Santa Cruz. I am now self employeed, creating websites like Datayze.

I like to think of myself as the eccentric scientist in training. I tend to think I’m fairly easy going, and friendly. Sometimes I’m a bit silly, and absent minded despite my best efforts. I’ve been known to lose my glasses on my forehead, and my keys in my hand. Wasn’t Albert Einstein forgetful too? My ultimate “blonde” moment, though, was locking myself out on the patio of my old third floor apartment, in my PJs, with the shower running. True story. Thankfully I wasn’t locked out for long. I popped the screen door out of place and solved that problem.

I have never had a cup of coffee. Not out of any sense of conviction, I just can’t stand bitter and am perfectly happy with a cup of tea or coco. I survived the newborn phase while writing my dissertation and largely uncaffinated.
