B.A., English, Gallaudet University

I am a New Jersey native and proud of it.  When I was a Gallaudet student, I was very involved with various organizations such as the Buff and Blue, Student Body Government and Literary Society.  I appreciate the Arts: literature, film, drama, and art.  I consider myself a self-appointed patron of the Arts.  In my spare time, you can find me with a comic book, The publisher doesn't matter (DC, MC or Independent) as long as it is a good read.

I select and buy materials for the Library's English and Business collections.   I provide reference, instruction, and research support for students, staff, and faculty members focusing on English, Accounting, Business, Economics, ASL/Deaf Studies, Psychology, Counseling, and Social Work. I also create and maintain many of the records that appear in our catalog.

I taught GSR 101 in Fall 2016 and Fall 2017.

I am a member of the Battle of the Books Executive Committee, Clerc Center 21st Century Ad-Hoc Committee, and District of Columbia Association of the Deaf.

I co-authored the entry on "Books" for "The Sage Deaf Studies Encyclopedia", and moderated a panel discussion for the 2015 Georgetown University Roundtable Conference on the Stewardship of Sign Language.
