About meIn the online world I write the Northwest website WA-List and its companion Facebook and Twitter feeds. You can also find me at Flickr and Facebook.

In the real world -- if you can find me at all -- I'm out hiking the slopes of Mt Rainier or biking or hiking some trail in the Pacific Northwest. I usually pack a book and a camera, too.

I graduated the University of Puget Sound and work as a library trainer and IT Specialist.

About my libraryI've been collecting books since I was a kid and still have a few favorites from when I was about 8 years old. The numbers have been piling up since then -- weeded a few times whenever I face a move to a new house or just because the sheer size seems a bit ridiculous. (But ridiculous is in the eye of the beholder.) My collection now numbers in the 2500 volume range, with most having to do with the Northwest, science, history, and literature. By the way, titles on this list might be books that I own, books that I've read, or both.
