Bio: 

I've been a web developer for 16 years, specializing in PHP on LAMP. When I tried Drupal about seven years ago, I fell in love, married myself to it (technologically speaking) and haven't looked back since. I switched all my projects to Drupal 5 and then ported them to Drupal 6. Now I try to develop on Drupal 7, with an eye on Drupal 8. I work at Infusionsoft as Senior Web Developer and Drupal Ninja.

In the community, I co-host the Phoenix Drupal User Group and help organize and present or train at Phoenix DrupalCamp. I also occasionally present at Desert Code Camp.

I am the husband of the former Rachel Williams and the father of 13 energetic children, ranging in age from 22 to 1 year old. We live in the Valley of the Sun, the Phoenix, Arizona metro, where I suffer through the oppressive summers because I love the city.

I am the out-of-the-box pioneer in my family, having introduced my wife to home school, alternative medicine, and other “radical” notions early in our marriage. After getting her on board, I now do my best to support her and our children in their educational endeavors. I'm presently studying permaculture design as a path to food sustainability and self reliance. I am also an aspiring amateur cook, and love to share my ethnically-diverse concoctions with family and friends, or just seek out the more exotic options at local ethnic restaurants.
