I am an associate professor and the web services librarian at the James E. Walker
Library at Middle Tennessee State University. I was previously the librarian for distance
learning services at MTSU, where I have worked since 2003. My interests range from user
interfaces to open access publishing, but my favorite thing to do is to turn down the
lights in my office, crank up the Mexican polka, and play with Firebug.
