  • Bio

    I'm a reference librarian at the Milwaukee Public Library, where I work in the Humanities department as well as at the general reference, business, phone, and VR desks; I manage the travel, general history, and maps collection; and I generally pester everybody with my constant requests to get involved with programs across all departments and to try out new ideas. I'm passionate about public programming for all ages, readers' advisory, intellectual freedom, and ... well, and lots of other things I won't blather on about here. Check out my portfolio to get a better sense of who I am and what I've done:
