I'm a lifelong nonfiction reader―I've always enjoyed learning about a wide variety of topics through nonfiction, biographies, memoirs and travel writing. I enjoy fiction (especially historical fiction and sci-fi) and do read it occasionally, but my long list of unread nonfiction usually comes first.
After a 20-year career as a Washington, D.C. military musician (clarinetist in the Air Force & Navy bands) I pursued a Master's degree in library science from Catholic University. I have a few years' experience in elementary school libraries and now enjoy helping people of all ages find books at the Sherwood Regional library.
As a musician I've read many music biographies (rock, jazz, classical) and my other interests include: the arts, business, technology, travel, history, current events and any other books that look interesting!
My wife reads lots of nonfiction as well so we often recommend recently enjoyed books to each other and discover things that we might not have picked ourselves. Having this experience at home helps me share book ideas with others as you never know what books you may enjoy―especially books on topics you may not have picked yourself.
I work part-time as an information librarian at the Sherwood Regional library. Please allow a few days for me to get back to you as I'm not at work every day.
