Who am I? I am, and have been, many things.
squint your eyes and look closer
i'm not between you and your ambition
i am a poster girl with no poster
i am thirty-two flavors and then some
Ani DiFranco 32 flavors
I live work and play in Bend, Oregon, where I work part-time as a reference librarian for Central Oregon Community College (COCC). My wife is the librarian for Oregon State University-Cascades.
My work-related research interests focus on the organization and access of information, with a specific focus on classificatory structures. Currently I am focused on theory and use of language in LIS, with a focus on Integrationism.
My pastime interests are beer—especially craft beer—and photography.
