I was born in Fountain Valley, CA. I have a B.A. in Philosophy and Literature and a dual M.A./M.F.A in Poetics from New College of California in San Francisco. I've lived in the city for the last twenty odd years.
I've been working at Gleeson since about 2006. For many years I worked in public service assisting patrons with accessing print periodicals and microfilm along with staffing the reference desk responding to patron research queries, while also overseeing Gleeson's bindery needs. Following a library reorganization project I transitioned to the Electronic Resources & Systems department where I respond to patron queries and perform upkeep regarding the various E-resources available at Gleeson.
