My name is Ricardo Enricque Johnson, and I’m a PhD student in the Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education (HALE) program at Michigan State University.

I’m also an academic librarian with a Master of Arts in Library and Information Science degree from the University of Arizona.

Concurrently, I earned a Graduate Certificate of Advanced Study in Archival Studies from the UA School of Information.

Earlier, I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Film from the Sidney Poitier New American Film School at Arizona State University.
