Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

I have been working with computers since 1990 and the web since 1995. In 2000 I began working with PHP and in 2003 became a full-time PHP developer. I have built over 10 CMS platforms that collectively have powered 1000+ websites and am now an advocate of Drupal.

I have created, or been part of a team that created, over 500 websites, over 100 of those have been on Drupal. These have been websites ranging from small business to intranets to sites serving over 100 pages a second.

Creatively I enjoy theming sites as well as reading and writing Sci-Fi novels. My car is a 1964 Chrysler Newport and I've worked a blacksmith's forge. There are few things I don't enjoy putting my hands or mind to. Increasing in knowledge and (hopefully) wisdom is one of my loftiest goals.

Competing for attention in the crowded landscape of my mind are my wife and 1 year old daughter.
