Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

I'm just a guy who knows a good thing when he sees it.
As soon as I discovered Drupal in 2007 I knew I found a career opportunity that fit me perfectly. I directed all of my passion to learning Drupal, Developing in Drupal, then immediately to Teaching Drupal.

Drupal Contributions: 

I started the Indy Drupal Users Group in Indianapolis in January 2008, lead it for 4 years then stepped aside when my travels and my business increased. I still participate and present and enjoy it very much.
I'm a moderator on where I help delete spam, help group-managers use panels to layout their group pages, and help abandoned groups find new managers.

Areas of Expertise: 
I'm an unstoppable Drupal Trainer who travels extensively to public groups
government agencies
etc to place the power of Drupal in the hands of the people that require it.
I'm one of the busiest Drupal evangelists around. In 2010 I traveled and spoke at 12 Drupalcamps as well as DrupalCon San Francisco
WebContent Conference
The UniForum Chicago
and private sessions on University campuses and virtual meetings.
In all I've been to 25 DrupalCamps delivering training.
