- Head, Adult Services
- 269-553-7841 | Email
I began my career at KPL in the spring of 1999 as lead librarian at the Alma Powell Branch and remained at the Powell branch until 2006 when I moved to the Central library and the Loan & Outreach Services department. In the fall of 2007 I became head of the Adult Services Department where I oversee the libraries adult print collections, Audiovisual, Law Library, Local History Room, ONEplace services to nonprofits, reference service, Tech Center, and an assortment of other library programs and services.
While I do work some shifts at the reference desk on the 2nd floor of the Central Library and really enjoy interacting with and directly assisting KPL's great patrons, most of what I do at KPL takes place behind the scenes. I feel tremendous pride working for the Kalamazoo Public Library and I continue to believe in the essential value of public libraries.
When not at the library, I live in the mighty Vine Neighborhood of Kalamazoo with my wife and daughter and can often be found riding one of my bicycles, reading, or walking in the woods with my family.
