  2. 2. Linette Brown Sci-fi Lovertel: 1-613-299-7587email: linette_brown@carleton.ca post: 1542 Bourcier Dr. Ottawa, Ontario K1E 3J2 Hi there! Since I havent had the pleasure of meeting you yet, I thought Id let you get to know me a little. I got into the Industrial Design program at Carleton straight out of high school. As soon as I discovered that this was an actual job, I knew that industrial design was what I wanted Adventurer to do with my life. Its not work if you love it right? At the moment I am currently exploring the possibilities in exhibition design by way of an internship at the Canadian Museum of Nature located in Ottawa. This was driven by my interest in user interaction and I am loving it. Trying to understand how someone uses an object, and what they are drawn to is pretty fascinating. I love learning new things, so the variety of exhibits provides me with so much exciting information. I am an aspiring traveller, having been on exchange to Australia and visited several other places, but there are still so many places I want to go. I like to stay active when my busy schedule allows; until a recent injury, this usually meant a good game of soccer. Im a little bit of a geek and a lover of sci-fi. Vid games and baking are pretty awesome, and eo I like music of the indie-alt variety though Ill listen to just about anything. I also take my Halloween costumes pretty seriously. Im a down to earth girl with practical sensibilities. I try to avoid conflicts whenever possible and I do pretty well with a group of willing teammates. I would classify myself Industrial Designer as a reality based optimist and Id love for a chance to show you what I can do.
