I was born and raised outside of Princeton, NJ. After high school, I headed west to begin studying at the University of Michigan, where I earned both an Undergraduate and Graduate degree in Voice Performance from U of M's School of Music. Outside of my studies, I was actively involved with the Men's Glee Club and its accompanying a capella and entertainment group, The Friars. I was also involved in a variety of intramural sports, and took part in the University of Michigan's annual charity event Dance Marathon.
After spending two years as a Library Operations staff member at the University of Michigan's Shapiro Undergraduate Library, I decided to go back to school to study the design of interactive systems, and gain knowledge about needs assessment, and user experience research and design. In early 2016, I began working at Michigan State University, as the User Experience & Assessment Librarian.
In my free time I enjoy playing Ice Hockey and Softball, and hanging out with my dogs. I love New York style pizza and University of Michigan football, and as a master of the "Kevin Bacon Movie Game", I am always on the lookout for new challengers.
