What is the one thing that people should know about me. My professional ethos - my guiding star - is to help connect people to what they are looking for.  In addition, I also enjoy working with people. Thus, I enjoy both working in libraries and teaching. I previously worked at SirsiDynix (a library database software company), at the Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine Research Library, at the NOAA Central Library (contractor position), and at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation Library (student assistant position).  I have also taught weekend classes for the Alabama Motorcycle Safety Program. My wife and I have lived in Huntsville since 1997. We enjoy bicycling, motorcycling, vegan cooking, camping, watching movies, reading, and spending time with family & friends.
