About meManager of Planning and Scheduling for Nassau Inter-County Express (NICE), powered by Veolia Transportation; formerly, Manager of Scheduling for MTA Long Island Bus.
About my libraryMy collection includes books that my wife owns. I have about 3000-4000 books, and am in the process of cataloging them, about 100 a week. My interests include public transportation (rail, buses, scheduling), travel, linguistics and languages, some fantasy and science fiction, Oulipo, religion, Episcopal church, Enneagram, mathematics, almanacs. I also collect city maps and public transport timetables.
