On top of that, she is a martial arts expert with an impressive collection of weapons (as you will find out), a general geek and pure and simply a great person to have a chat with.

We talked about science, languages, martial arts, poetry, philosophy, religion, being geek (including fashion choices) and several tangents are in there as well. And before I forget: You will also find out the story behind the Ninjabis!

Please enjoy and check out her homepage and Facebook presence.
