December 2012 MULSA Spotlight Award Winner: James Keyzer-Andre

Our Spotlight Award winner for December 2012 is James Keyzer-Andre!

James George Keyzer-Andre is a Library Information Specialist II with the UM Libraries Depository/Access Services.  He has been with MU Libraries for 16 and a half years!

James is originally from Ypsilanti, Michigan, where he graduated from high school in 1990.  He served in the U.S. Army and graduated with his bachelor’s degree from MU.

In his leisure time, James enjoys 2D and 3D graphics, building computers, writing, hiking, and photography.  He and his wife, Jennifer, have a daughter named Jocelyn and three cats (Ayla, Morton, and Zoe).  His favorite candies are turtles (caramel and pecan clusters covered in chocolate).

The coolest place that James has visited is East Point, Prince Edward Island in Canada.

In a movie of his life, James would like to be portrayed by the actor Jason Alexander and the soundtrack music would be “something cinematic, but entirely inappropriate for what is going on at any given time.”

If he could have a drink with any fictional or real person, who would that be and what drink?

Leslie Burke, from the book “Bridge to Terabithia”, by Katherine Paterson.  A glass of water would do.

James would also like to share this:  “Patience, not perfection, is where happiness lies.”

Congratulations, James!
