Born and lived:  The Bronx, New York.

early life:  Wonderful memories growing up in the Bronx with my two sisters and many Armenian relatives!

professional career and activities:  I started out in Acquisitions as a paraprofessional at Columbia University.  My first professional position was at Syracuse University as the Acquisitions Librarian (1980).  I went to work at the University of West Florida as the Head of the Acquisitions Department in 1985, and then as Head of the Acquisitions Department at Syracuse University in 1990.  That position became the Head of Bibliographic Services when cataloging and acquisitions functions were merged.  From there I went to Florida State University as the Assistant Director for Technical Services.  In 1999, I went to Penn State as their Assistant Dean for Access and Technical Services.  Finally, in 2004 I became the Dean of University Libraries at UNC-Greensboro.

Family:  A husband, son and beautiful daughter-in-law.  Two wonderful sisters, a niece, nephew and his beautiful wife.

in my spare time:  What spare time?  I love to travel and look forward to annual trips to Europe every November, and the Dominican Republic in March.

favorite books:  Sandcastle Girls, by Chris Bohjalian and Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner.

pet peeves:  Things out of place, sloppiness.

Philosophy:  I don’t have a philosophy that I live by.

most memorable career achievement:  Being the President of ALCTS and winning the Leadership in Library Acquisitions Award.

goal I hope to achieve five years from now:  I hope to be enjoying my retirement — living a happy and healthy life.
