    Bio

    Bio
    I am currently a student in the Master’s of Information and Library Science degree at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, Connecticut. I earned my BA in history from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. For about the past four years, I have been a sales associate and Easy Tech at Staples in Branford and Milford, Connecticut. After little success in my job search, I decided that it was time to earn my master’s degree and started in the spring of 2010. Considering my interest in history and enjoyment for historical research and documents, my current plan of study involves preparing for working in archival and preservation work. I also have a healthy interest in technology and how it may affect our lives and the information profession. My other interests include fantasy and science fiction novels, films, PC gaming, and roleplaying games. Current gadgets: Amazon Kindle 3G, Motorola Droid, HP Mini 210-1030NR.
