I’ve had a tremendous love for books since I was a young girl. Growing up in a tumultuous family, reading was a sanctuary for me. I’d escape into the Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House on the Prairie series eventually graduating to books like a James Michener epic novel, or great literary classics such as To Kill a Mockingbird or Atlas Shrugged.
In school, I received a lot of praise from my teachers for my writing skills and was encouraged to pursue it as a major in college. After graduating from UCLA with a degree in English, technology was booming and I caught the bug. I worked as a corporate business development strategist specializing in emerging growth technology, software and Internet companies. I was fortunate to have worked for numerous start-up companies who partnered with many technology giants including Intel, Hewlett Packard, IBM, Microsoft, Broderbund Software, and Sierra Online. After the dot.com bubble burst, I started an IT/Web Development firm that has been servicing the greater Los Angeles area since 1998.
Wise Bear was conceived from my love for books and technology.

The Wise Bear family of websites represent the new paradigm in digital publishing which is the perfect fusion of words, technology, and media.
