PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

My three grown children, but with the important qualification that my contributions to their being compassionate, productive citizens, have been in concert with those of their mom, other family members, friends and teachers. It does take a village!

FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB:

I get to work with a lot of smart people who are passionately devoted to the egalitarian service-oriented mission of the public library that transforms lives and strengthens our democracy.

REMEMBER ME FOR:

As a person who engaged with substance without taking himself too seriously, who was steady and dependable, and who was open-minded enough to continue learning and changing.

PERSONAL MOTTO:

I recently heard a definition of “mindfulness” that I liked: “Trying to hover objectively above one’s emotions and feelings.” I’m trying to be more intentional about noting and expressing gratitude for the people and occasions that enrich my life daily.

ADVICE TO OTHERS:

Find role models to look up to who will field your questions and give candid advice. And develop friendships with people who have different perspectives and lived experiences from yours.
