Like many working in the IT industry, under her technical analyst façade, hides a hippie geek. Diana’s childhood consisted of a great deal of video game playing, and watching hours of classic cartoons/ PBS shows. In 1986, her life changed when she was introduced to Labyrinth, and she fell deeply in love for the first time. She has watched the movie countless times, and owns the soundtrack, comics and manga books, among other paraphernalia. She has also attended the Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade ball, which she recommends everyone do… it is a magical experience. She feels incredibly blessed to have found this lovely group of people to geek out with, on all sorts of topics. The fun never ends!
