Lets just resolve the confusion about my first name. My offical first name is Henriette, but all my life long I am known as Ariette. I am a Swiss living with my husband in the San Francisco Bay Area enjoying this multi cultural environment, loving the warm weather. As most of the people in this area, I am working in the high tech industry, currently as a senior director software development at Oracle. I grew up on skis in the Swiss Alps. Every day that I am not on skis, I am missing it. I am dreaming of skiing. So I do the next best thing, a lot of exercising, often biking.
