Like many others who dreamt of becoming the next [insert name of starchitect here], Wanda found herself on a slightly different path, in large part because she is terrible at math. No, she actually loves numbers, but she can't quit her love/hate relationship with the blinking cursor. She has an M.A. in journalism from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University, an S.M. in building technology from MIT, and a B.S. in civil engineering from Michigan State University. She has trolled construction sites as an owner’s rep, fixed building deficiencies as a consultant engineer, and experienced the PR side as the communications director for an architecture firm. In the early morning hours, Wanda may be found cranking out stationery on a 700-pound, 1896 letterpress printer, which has nearly offed her husband.
