Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

Drupaller for the last few years. Started using Drupal for science museum grant projects (exhibitions, social networks.) Worked with Gorton Studios and was a developer for sites like the Missouri Department of Conservation website, a few video episode sites for some PBS shows, and worked on a search feature for a local recycling initiative.

Since summer 2010, I have been independent. Organized a Drupal learning collaborative (Drupal Open Garden Project) which was really thrilling and opened up a lot of possibilities to advocate for Drupal in improving our food systems. Worked with Quilted Coop on the New Play Map - which will show all of the new theatrical plays in America.

Starting January 2011, I will be doing Code for America as part of Team Seattle. We will be building a Civic Leader Network to facilitate communication between neighborhood leaders & municipal government.


On for 11 years 12 months
