I’m a librarian at the North Canton Public Library. I’ve worn many hats over 15yrs, from Reference library associate, Teen librarian, Patron Services manager, to my current position as Outreach Services manager , and working on Collection Development for the adult nonfiction, music, and video game collections (best part of the job if I do say so myself!) I love animals and currently take care of 2 Bernese Mountain dogs, 1 cat, and a tortoise. I love to be outside no matter what the weather, and typically escape there for balance. I enjoy photography, writing, reading, music, hiking, skiing, and watching football (not the American version).

Most recently, Rich has joined the WP Roundtable Podcast team and when he’s not knee-deep in achieving Career 2.0, Rich works full time in Supply Chain and teaches Web Development at a local Community College, evenings and online.
