I am a librarian working for the Bureau of International Information Program’s Office of American Spaces at the U.S. Department of State on behalf of TRI-COR Industries.

My duties include but are not limited to:

  • Managing quantitative data and qualitative reporting submitted by overseas posts about the American Spaces program for use by the Office, the Bureau, the Department, and other government stakeholders.
  • Managing access to the Office’s virtual library and other Office and Bureau-provided electronic resources.
  • Providing timely animated gifs related to coffee.

This one’s my favorite, although
I wasn’t the one in my office who discovered it.

I graduated from the University of Maryland’s iSchool in 2008 with a Master’s degree in Library Science. My master’s thesis is “Advanced Content In State E-Government: Criteria for Evaluation,” and it is woefully out of date. But it did get me an MLS and a Library of Congress authority record.

My wife, son, dog, and I live in Rockville, MD and yes, we are familiar with the song by R.E.M.
