About meArts-lover, sports nut and all-around goof. I work part-time for a Jewish preschool and do freelance web work. I've been happily married since May 2004 -- thanks, Massachusetts!

About my libraryA hodgepodge of historical fiction, sci-fi, fantasy (especially Pratchett), filmmaking books, sportswriting, travel guides and memoirs, children's classics, GLBT works, and other stuff. When I married my wife, I married her book collection too, so any books listed here are really ours rather than just mine.
