Introduction

I attended UW Tacoma back when the campus was in the Perkins Building on 11th and A. street. While I was a student, I was a founding member of Tahoma West and worked as a student assistant for both the Library and in the computer lab. 

I started working full time for the Library in 1996 as a Library Technician. I held various Library jobs in the five years after that, including the Technician Lead position for Circulation.

In 2001 the Library decided to use my unique blend of Library experience and technology expertise to create a new position as the sole tech support for the Library. As the Head of Library IT, I build and maintain all of the computers in the Snoqualmie building. I also train all of the Library staff, maintain the Library and LARC web sites, order new equipment and plan building projects, and provide tech support to the students, staff and Faculty  using library resources.
