I have five years of experience as a school librarian at the elementary-school level. Before moving to Valdez in July of 2011 my wife and I (we were married in 2010) lived in Emigrant, Montana (my hometown is Bozeman, Montana). I am passionate about English literature, and I really like libraries. My work as a school librarian has been very enjoyable. I like to read (mostly novels), write children's books, swim, and hike, and I am a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, as well as a New York Yankees fan.
