About Me

Born in San Francisco, I've lived up and down both coasts of the U.S. and went to high school at Taipei American School (Taiwan). Studied Culture, Ecology, and Sustainable Community at New College of California, and have an MS in Library and Information Science from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Past Lives

I've worked in all kinds of libraries in Southern and Northern California, and in between have been a recycler, a photographer, a bindery worker, a paralegal, and a planning and environmental law analyst.

Gleeson Library | Geschke Center

I started here in Periodicals in 1998. In my current position, held since 2003, besides my liaison areas I'm responsible for acquisition, cataloging and management of the library's a/v media collections (video, maps, etc.) as well as overseeing government documents collections processing.

Professional Interests

Media access issues, international students and libraries, seed libraries, cataloging conundrums.
