I have worked in public and academic libraries since 2005.
As someone recently remarked, I am one of those "rare unicorns that are born and raised in Portland, Oregon." I am also an alumnus of PCC, which I credit for teaching me how to be a successful student and for laying the foundation for all my future academic achievements. I am grateful for the opportunity to return to PCC in order to help others get wherever they want to go and find the information that will help take them there.
In my spare time, I like to spend time with my wife, young daughter, and even younger son. I also enjoy reading almost anything printed from the Library of America, writing, riding old bicycles, and playing a wide variety of stringed instruments to the frequent dismay of my neighbors.
