Linda Bugge

Linda BuggeLinda is a senior graduating this fall with a major in Media Arts and a Medieval Studies minor.  She earned an A. A. degree in Cinema at Los Angeles City College and worked as a sound designer/engineer in the entertainment industry for 23 years before moving to Albuquerque.  She worked on such CD-ROM game titles as Monty Python’s Meaning of Life and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, as well as The Return to Krondor, Little Howie with Howie Mandel, and others.  Her film work includes Hellraiser IV, Psycho III, Who’s Your Daddy (no, really), and The Lords of Magick, among others. She was part of the launch team for The Game Sow Network, and one of the high points of her entertainment career was producing segments with Mark Hamill as a guest, who invited her to the launch party of his computer game “Wing Commander” at Planet Hollywood.  One of the others was spending many hours recording Eric Idle for the dialog of Meaning of Life.  It was truly a learning experience!

Linda works at UNM as a Program Coordinator, first for the Integrating Nanotechnology with Cell Biology and Neuroscience IGERT grant (where she hosted speculative fiction writer Vernor Vinge), and now with the Nanoscience & Microsystems program.

Linda loves reading, all things science fiction, (Star Wars, Blade Runner, Indiana Jones, Firefly) and is a hobby orchidist.  Her love of all things Viking has led her to the Medieval Studies program at UNM, allowing her to delve more deeply into Viking mythology, history, and current studies.  She has visited ruins in Crete, Greece, and England, and hopes to take a Northern European tour in the next few years.
