Picture of myselfHi! I’m a Midwesterner who is passionate about books. Back in my “music days,” I  wrote for many outlets in Chicago including Gapers Block and The Deli Magazine Chicago, as well as ran my own website HEAVEmedia with some wonderful people until 2014. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with my MLIS and a concentration in Archives in August 2016. I now work at the Brookfield Public Library in the Chicago suburbs, and volunteer at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum’s Collections.

I currently write book reviews for Booklist, and am constantly work on my TBR pile. When I’m not at work or writing book reviews, I enjoy reading comic books, trying new beers, working on cosplay, and binge playing video games.
