I am an information professional with an interdisciplinary academic background, interests in many flavors of technology, and a penchant toward foodie/music/film snobbery. I am interested in open access to scholarly research, cultural heritage data (curation, preservation and management) and digital humanities. I am proud to have started my career as the Scholarly Communication Librarian at Florida State University, my alma mater thrice over, while spending my nights with two Boston Terriers and one lovely wife. I also have an undying love for the academic study of contemporary popular culture (film, music, literature, etc).
Some brief details:
- I graduated with my MLIS from Florida State University’s School of Library and Information Studies in April 2011.
- I was also a founding member of the blog Hack Library School, dedicated to resources by, for and about students in library school.
- Lately, I write/edit about librarianship for In The Library with the Lead Pipe, and also do some writing about my job over here.
- Other things I’ve gotten myself involved in:
- I really love my job and am pretty content with life right about now.
