Drupal Contributions: 

I inherited maintainership of the popular CCK Blocks module.
I created and co-maintained the OpenID ICAM Extension module.
Lately I have been helping as a co-maintainer on the Citizens Connected module.

I've been working on Drupal sites, mainly with Affinity Bridge, since Drupal 4.7. Back in the day, I ported some 4.7 modules to 5.x: og2list and flash_gallery module (both now deprecated). I was briefly maintainer for the deprecated ApacheSolr 5.x-1.x branch, before Drupal 5 went EOL. I also rescue floundering patches and help get them committed where I can or where I come across issues. I primary wear a server-admin hat, and so my focus is on stability/fixing/backporting for Drupal versions I support in my professional work. I do my best to help any broken stuff I encounter along, and to explain simple fixes I find on issue queues for users who are less technical or unable to use patches.
