How would you describe your job?
I usually just say I take books out of boxes and move them around — it's not a glamorous description or a complete one. But usually as soon as I say I work for Powell's, people freak out a little bit.
Where are you originally from?
The Chicago suburbs.
What did you do before you came to Powell’s?
I've been working in customer service off and on for a long time while trying to figure out how to get a viable filmmaking career going without moving to LA.
What is the most interesting part of your job?
I like coming across so many interesting titles that might not be on my radar if I wasn't receiving 1,000 books a day. I take quick pictures of any books that look intriguing to me and keep an album of them on my phone...
