I'm a fairly quiet low-key librarian. Though I'm currently living in Virginia, I'm a California native. I like hiking, tea, museums, books, going to the theater/opera, and Lake Tahoe. Some of my favorite places I've been are Istanbul, the Adirondacks/High Peaks region, the Outer Banks, and Santa Fe.
Obviously I love to read, and some of my favorite authors are Austen, Pushkin, Bill Bryson, and Tony Horowitz. I also love books about the decorative arts and historic architecture, and love visiting places where I can indulge my love of material culture.
