About me

Industry Technology
Occupation IT/IS Director
Location United States
Introduction A lifelong computer geek, I majored in English Literature and later earned an M.A. in Library Information Science. I have three decades of public library experience that started in Reference Services and ultimately led to serving as an IT Director. I have been writing fiction and poetry as a hobby for most of my life. In 2020, a friend inadvertently introduced me to oracle cards, and I promptly began a new journey into tarot reading. I’m also highly proficient at dream interpretation.
