About My Library
I virtually classify and physically shelve my library books topically into six mutually exclusive areas which I call “Rooms”:

AVOCATIONAL Room – which covers my varied interests that I choose not to earn a living from at this time. Sample topics include: Adventure (locomotion), Travel (destination), Photography, and Arts.

SOCIAL VOCATIONAL Room – covers topics I have personally used to earn a living in the Social Sector (aka the Nonprofit world). My working pursuits split broadly into Philanthropy, Cultures (i.e. cross cultural settings), and International. They are further broken out into more granular topics like: Fundraising issues, Nonprofit Orgs, Leadership and Innovation, and Other Cultures.

BUSINESS VOCATIONAL Room – covers topics I have personally used to earn a living in the Private Sector (aka the Business world). My working pursuits split broadly into Technology, Business, and Vocation. They are further broken out into more granular topics like: General Technology, Management, Marketing, Products and Services, and General Vocation.

FAITH Room – covers the spiritual realm from a decidedly Christian worldview. My topics include World Religions, Theology, Missiology, and General Christianity.

EDUCATIONAL Room – covers all other nonfiction of a more general nature, including Science, History, General Education, and Other subjects.

FICTIONAL Room – covers the spectrum of fiction I personally enjoy. It ranges from standard cozy mysteries to a large selection of modern thrillers (with highlights to nautical fiction and mysteries about books) to a variety of literature and other fiction.

Geographic and Location details:
• I have an exhaustive collection of books on the Sherpa People of Nepal, who I had the privilege to live among for 4 years. Related topics include South Asian cultures, the Himalayan Region, and of course Mount Everest itself.
• I am drawn to books that evoke a strong sense of geographic place”. This is reflected in both my selection of books as well as my tagging of them.
• My Travel bookcase is further divided into shelves on Pacific Northwest, American Southwest and Southeast Asia and Oceania, and Himalayan Region to reflect the primary “places” of my personal exploration.

Classification detail:
• My library uses a hierarchical taxonomy of three-tiers: “Room – Bookcase – Shelf”. Room I equate to walking into a room with multiple bookcases on one domain of knowledge (generally >500 books). Bookcase I equate to an entire bookcase devoted to three or more related subjects (generally >100 books). Shelf is one or more shelves devoted to a single subject (generally around 25-100 books).
• For a complete up-to-date list of all shelf names please consult the first column of all tags.
About Me
Experientially I am a husband, a father, an adventurer, a developer, a musician, a lover of natural beauty, and a man of faith. I have enjoyed living in Seattle, Washington; Southeast Asia; Pasadena, California; Kathmandu, Nepal; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Portland, Oregon. I have visited over 25 countries, but I still believe some of the world’s best natural beauty lies in the USA’s National Park system.

Vocationally I am a technology product and program management professional with 20 years experience in the creation and delivery of innovative IT services, software/hardware products, Internet services, professional services and community development/ICT programs (for more see LinkedIn profile). I have long history of active service in the nonprofit sector and international work experience involving programs in over 25 countries.

Avocationally I enjoy being a landscape photographer, a hand percussionist (and drummer with strong leanings towards jazz improvisation), a volleyball coach, an alpine mountaineer, a blue water sailor, and an unabashed bibliophile.
