About me

I select for the science fiction/ fantasy & horror collections, as well as the religion/spirituality (200s) section. I have a B.A. in Sociology from Loras College (Go Duhawks!) and an MLIS from San Jose State University.

Interests include graphic novels (print and web), cats, terrible sci fi movies, dinosaurs, duct tape crafts, cat dinosaurs, astronomy and the impending heat death of our solar system.

I own a lightsaber, a sonic screwdriver, Lego Curiosity Mars rover and Space Shuttle Atlantis models, and have been known to stay up very, very late for rover landings, meteor showers, Toonami, and subversive radio programs. I played Dungeons and Dragons once and it was not terrible.

I watch a lot of cartoons, and am currently freaking out over Steven Universe and Adventure Time (animated and the graphic novel collections, esp. Mathmatical #4). I probably enjoy Teen Titans Go!, the Amazing World of Gumball and Regular Show more than I should.

I'm a proud Kickstarter backer of Bee & Puppy Cat, Derelict: Book One and Ava's Demon.

I served honorably on the T.S.N. Artemis as Communications Officer from 2012-2014.

Currently working on achieving Eternal Scout status.
