Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

I've been making websites for nearly as long as the Web's been around, for major media, non-profit, and government clients. As the web got more specialized after the early "webmaster" days, I originally focused on content development and project management. Discovering Drupal in 2010 got me back into PHP development, and I'm now the Drupal lead at Bixal.


On for 7 years 3 months

Drupal Contributions: 

I'm one of the maintainers of the Salsa API module, which allows Drupal sites to connect to the Salsa/Cosm CRM from Salsa Labs. I'm also lead developer for HubDub, an interactive video module for Drupal. As time permits, I also write patches for Drupal core and help out in the issue queues.
