History

Member for

Drupal Contributions: 

Drupal core committer, co-author of the O'Reilly book Using Drupal, Drupal Association Board Member, team lead of Spark, Acquian, Google Summer of Code alumnus, and general Drupal community cat herder.

My goal is to help get as many new contributors as possible as obsessed with Drupal as I am. ;) I like building and contributing to tools that make Drupal development easier and Drupal's user experience more friendly to newcomers, and focus on core API improvements to enhance code clarity, quality assurance, documentation, and usability efforts.

Note: My contact form is disabled. This is by design. If you have an inquiry about one of my modules, use the issue queue. If you have a project you'd like to hire me for, please contact Acquia.
