My professional interests include traditional and emerging information technologies and policies and practices that further the free flow of information. My area of practice is Technical Services with experience in meta data creation and control, workflow management, and designing information systems, with a particular interest in end user interface. I’ve helped public libraries in New Hampshire develop and maintain a bibliography network, a collector of 19th century art ephemera create a taxonomy schema, and the City of Newton, Massachusetts get it’s municipal web site up and running.
I graduated from Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, MD, Pine Manor College (AA), Boston University (BA, English) and Simmons College (MS, Information Science). I’ve completed course work at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and MOOCs through edX and Coursera.
My wife and I have been together since dinosaurs roamed the earth. We have two kids, and three cats. In the winter, I live to ski, and in the summer I play golf (which I write about here) and reading in the hammock.
I live in Somerville, Massachusetts and am civilly active – I’ve run for municipal office (twice), am a member of my ward committee and have volunteered at several local non-profits (Community Action Agency of Somerville, Union Square Main Streets, and Community Cooks). A life long Democrat, I’m an alumni of Emerge Massachusetts.
