Favorite part of the job? I’d have to say Storytime. It’s a time I get to be a kid again - playing music, reading silly stories, moving, and grooving. Storytime is especially rewarding for me because I get a front row seat to the magic show of growing families. Week after week, I witness babies learning to crawl and kids learning to read!
What do you like to do when you’re not working? Reading, of course! Also, I love to ride my bike around town (I don’t own a car) and take leisurely hikes in our beautiful California countryside with my wife. We round out our weekends with coffee, drawing, and excursions to local museums.
What is number one on your bucket list? To realize our community’s dream of having a new Pleasant Hill Library. I grew up in this town with our current building, which was constructed in 1961. I credit my curiosity, creativity, and love of reading in part to all the time I spent here as a boy.
