About

I am currently a graduate student at University of Michigan’s School of Information. This blog is being kept, in part, for the class on Professional Practice in Libraries and Information Centers (SI 643).

I was born and raised in Metro Detroit, and attended the Residential College at the University of Michigan as an undergrad, where I studied Psychology and Comparative Literature. I then moved to Philadelphia, where I attended Temple University for my M.A. in Philosophy (focusing on aesthetics, ancient Greek philosophy, and philosophy of mind).  Following this, I managed a specialty grocery store in New York City for two years before deciding to return to Michigan and attend SI to earn my MSI degree. I’m currently pursuing a Tailored specialization, blending part of the HCI curriculum with the LIS program. Outside of class I enjoy cats, records, and comedy.

My academic and professional interests include:  Digital Libraries and Archives, Web Development, Copyright, Creative Commons, Intellectual Freedom, Academic and Research Libraries, Cognitive Psychology, Philosophy, Art and Music in Libraries, Digital Humanities.
