Banane means banana in French and German. It means something crass in Turkish. Banane.com originally hosted a “webisodic”- internet movie called Lava Lounge, circa ’99. It turned into a local color blog on living in North Beach and downtown. Now it’s a combination of various feminist, local color, and technology insights. It hosts some of my murder mysteries: iMurder & Killerizr.
OK back to me: I grew up in Cupertino, California, tried once to live in Paris, co-resided in Seattle for 5 years, and now reside for last 17 years in San Francisco, originally in the Mission, now in North Beach.
I’ve written five novels, and a screenplay about China invading San Francisco. If you’re interested- check out my writing projects. I’ve done professional writing for MarketingSherpa, MarketingProfs, my top marketing blog “Adventures in Email Marketing,” food writing for Michelin, and years of (my life lost doing) technical writing.
Mostly, now, I’m coding social iPhone and Android apps that are games. Yep. Check out the mobile projects.
I’m a Californian from a large, local family. I’m the youngest of 5 over-accomplished, beautiful, and talented siblings. I’m into local history, walking, open water swimming, tennis, travel, running, basketball, wine, beer, good local country-style regional and ethnic cuisine, playing arcade games with my 8, yes 8, nieces and nephews.
