l. j. rose : references : statement
"I have always been impressed by her knack for understanding and interpreting technical ideas, and exploiting them in creative ways.
Rose blends the artistic/creative with invention and technology. As
such she can, I believe, provide others with tools and skills and insights
that are needed now more than ever, even if these needs are not recognized
by those needing them.

"...but it was her visualization skills which made her a key member of our product development team. She excels at graphical interpretations of complex computer activities. Difficult concepts were rendered tractable to average users by her use of simple and powerful imagery."
have been consistently impressed with Lisa's insights, her ability to
absorb new knowledge quickly, and the energy and vivaciousness with
which she approaches her responsibilities.
Lisa continued to analyze the product, and came up with several valuable insights into how we could make things more intuitive and less 'Unixy'. She followed through with tenacity and humor, eventually overcoming her coworker's inertia and causing her suggestions to be incorporated in the current product.
Lisa not only understood how to use the eight or so Unix interfaces presented to her, she analyzed their strengths and weaknesses, and extracted a very insightful compendium of recommendations which the A/UX group has found to be invaluable.
is a hard worker, with an excellent intuitive understanding of how people
work. She is pleasant to work with and always has something humorous
to say. She has brought a sense of realism and insight to our group."
"With her background in both design and video, she gave us the correct solution and spared us from a potential disaster. I requested a written article on monitors from Lisa, and this article surpasses anything I've come across in the literature."
Her design work is extraordinary and ...her approach to a system or design problem is always intelligent and sound. She has the ability of communicating very complex ideas to various skill levels.
Any group would be very fortunate to have her as a mentor, the role to which I believe she is uniquely suited."
"I have had the opportunity to observe Lisa in a public leadership role, that of "Block Captain" for our Neighborhood Watch Committee. During a time of crisis, when a serial rapist was operating in our neighborhood, Lisa had the generosity and wisdom to volunteer her time to organize our block. With the help of the Community Police people, Lisa very effectively and efficiently provided leadership and organization for meetings and activities. She displayed a levelheaded, calming, reasonable and balanced perspective in a frightening and emotion laden situation. Having been to very many meetings in my life, I can say these were the most efficiently run I've ever had the pleasure of attending.
Lisa displays a unique combination of maturity, ability to see the "bigger picture", imagination, and sensitivity."
"...Ms. Rose's drawings and paintings succeed brilliantly in conveying the intense spiritual energy of the Zohar...
Gazing at her art is both an aesthetic and a spiritual experience. I recommend her work highly and unreservedly..."
