About Virginia

Showing someone how to do a better job with her dating profile.

Hi! I’m Virginia. I’m currently a Program Manager at Microsoft. I used do entirely many things—but the primary thing was helping people with online dating. In fact, that’s exactly what I’m doing in this picture, but I cropped my client out for her privacy.

I had my own business as an online dating coach over at The Heartographer. I also did some freelance writing and social media marketing, and various other things you can check out here. I’ve been interviewed or featured in ELLE and Hallmark magazines, and The Stranger and The Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspapers. My humor posts have been voted into Best-Of Craigslist several times.

When I’m not focused on online dating program management, I write about technology, love, life, linguistics, design, décor, fashion, food, advice, makeup, hair and skin care, video games, plants, and more I think.  I sometimes post on Heliotro.pe, my beauty blog, and  Framboi.se, my food blog. And of course, I used to copiously blog about online dating and relationships at  TheHeartographer.com. These days, I post here most of all, usually about tech and design. I love my husband and my cat Trumpet and my life.

Since the internet is simply filled with ways to track people down, you shouldn’t have too much trouble. If you just want to say hello, I recommend using Twitter. If you want to actually hire me, use email. Or just noodle around my sites until you find a phone number, and give me a call.
