Most recently, he directed the creation of ATSU library's discovery system centered around the Still OneSearch (EBSCO's EDS product) discovery tool and created a Clinical Rotations app for students.
He has served on the national board of REFORMA, the executive board of the Connecticut Library Association, and as a member of the Connecticut State Digital Library Advisory Board. He is the incoming chair for the EMTS section and the alternate MLA chapter rep for MLGSCA. He has presented about technology and language in several venues. He received his bachelor's of Spanish and Latin American Studies from Arizona State University and his MLS from the University of Arizona.
