Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

A biochemist by trade, I began dabbling in PHP development (and then Drupal) about 4 years ago. I unfortunately didn't have the foresight to take Computer Science in university, but I'm glad I've been able to make development my day-job despite that. (It's like I get to do puzzles ALL DAY!)

Currently working on configuration management with Opscode Chef, and so starting to work with Ruby as well. Hoping to take a stab at using SproutCore soon. Really interested in streamlining development processes in Drupal (Aegir, Chef, Vagrant, Drush Make, Profiler install profiles, Features, Environment module, etc), and sharing back with the community -- my current employer, Myplanet Digital, has graciously allowed me to chase some of these things!

Most of contributions live on Github rather than, but hoping to fix that soon:
