I have always been a Scrabble lover. If you think about it, it is a lot like scholarly publishing: it combines the intellect of a group of word lovers pulling off great moves, especially satisfying when done with limited resources and at the whim of serendipity. It is the thrill of the big collaboration that drew me to the director’s chair of Cornell University Press with our savvy staff who curate, edit, design, and amplify leading scholarship with skill and strategy. I start each day with gusto for the work we are privileged to do and the scholarly contributions we support to help make the world a better place, a rewarding mission we share with our entire university press community.

Data Processing Manager

With the University Press since 1987, first working as the lead operator and programmer/analyst for the Press sponsored fulfillment service through 2016, when this was closed and outsourced. Subsequently I’ve been in good company working at the editorial office, supporting the local IT infrastructure as well as data extraction, analysis and verification between the new fulfillment service and the “press-wide database” that is the referential point of information about the books produced by the Press and affiliates. In the off hours I enjoy cooking, films or television series in multiple genres, Linux and computer games, all in the company of my wife and our cats.
