About Me

My name is Becca.

I was born and raised in San Jose, CA. My early years were very busy with school and 4-H activities. From 1988 to 2004, I was involved in 4-H at almost all levels from local to national. I participated in and helped organize events associated with woodworking, rabbits, outdoor camping, public speaking, leadership, and technology.

A love of history, spaces, and (most importantly) Legos led me to attend Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, achieving my Bachelors of Architecture in 2002. I had a lot of fun playing the piccolo in the CP Marching Band as well as organizing events and mentoring other students as a Resident Advisor for two years in the dorms.

My two-wheeled career began during my third year of college when I convinced my parents to help me purchase a beater 1988 Honda Elite 80 scooter. I rode it everywhere, even slapping on some soft luggage and “touring” out to the nearby beaches via backroads. I’ve owned several other motorcycles since that little scooter. Read more about them on my motorcycles page.

After graduation, I found a great job with an architecture firm in Campbell, CA and spent several happy years discovering myself as an adult. I bought my dream car, a “big green truck,” during this time.  I’ll be the first to admit that my 2003 Chevrolet Silverado often gets neglected in favor of other forms of transportation.

I also re-discovered life outside motorcycles. I learned to enjoy motorcycle camping, backpacking, novice mountain-biking, and indoor rock-climbing. I’m a voracious reader, enjoying science fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction.

In March of 2006 I decided a change was needed and moved myself, my two bunnies, my cat, and my motorcycles to Houston, TX.

Since then I’ve been enjoying meeting wonderful people, discovering new roads, and continuing to work on fulfilling my dreams.

Why ‘Rocketbunny’?
During my first year of college, I lived in a dorm that had a high percentage of nerds. These guys got me addicted to computer video games, especially Quake and Warcraft. In Quake, one of the first true-3D first person shooters, my favorite weapon was the rocket launcher. I’d run around the map, firing off rockets and often achieving high “frag” scores against my friends. As a game “alias” name, I settled on Rocket-bunny, which worked well due to my love of that particular weapon and my long association with rabbits from 4-H.
