Cyan is a lifelong resident of Cotati who has been a regular patron of libraries for as long as he could read. During college, he discovered that he wanted to pursue library science as a career, specifically archiving/rare books and manuscripts. He graduated from University of California, Davis with a BA in comparative literature and a minor on global studies in 2022 and plans on going to graduate school for a MLIS in rare books in the future. He decided to join the Library Commission when he stumbled upon an opening for the Cotati Library Commissioner in an email from Sonoma County Library and decided he wanted hands-on experience within libraries before pursuing a career as one. He currently works as a relief counselor at a series of crisis/transitional halfway houses under the same organization, an engaging job that brings something different every day. When he is not at a library, he can be found writing fiction (both poetry and prose), reading novels, baking gluten and sugar free treats, creating checklists to manage his busy schedule, and challenging his alarmingly high tolerance for sour flavors.
