Personal Info


My day job is an IT Specialist with the EPA. I run the Office of Research and Development's Drupal-based intranet.

I am an organizer with Drupal4Gov that works to connect and empower Government employees. We've held 4 Drupal Government Days events and are planning our sixth Con this July 30th to August 1st 2017 in Bethesda at NIH.

Drupal4Gov also sponsors webinars and half-day events throughout the year. While we tailor many of our messages to government employees, almost everything we cover is useful to regular drupalers and open source evangelists!

Drupal GovCon is a free event that everyone should attend! EVERYONE!

We also hold events in DC and webinars that anyone can attend. We shape most of our work around Drupal but do look to open Government to the use and contribution to open source development in general.
