josh 250hI’ve lived in some different places and tried some different things, but after coming back to Chicagloand in 2019 after a stint in Tucson I’ve concluded that I’ll probably stay here the rest of my life. 

When the weather is nice I like to walk around the park all day.  I also like to spend free time in my chair by the window reading. 

I’ve been working in libraries since I returned to Chicagoland area and I feel privileged to continue to do so. I joined Elmwood Park Public Library at the start of 2020.
