I am Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Pingv. We do strategy and design with expertise and experience in Drupal implementation for enterprise clients in publishing, arts and education.

I've been working with Drupal and been part of the Drupal community since 2004 (my original account is in the 14000 range) and providing Drupal consultation to clients since 2005. I'm creator/maintainer of Square Grid theme and Floater theme, and maintainer of the Drupal 7 branch of the Mobile theme. On, I'm a site maintainer, documentation writer/editor, I've submitted patch(es). on, I'm a site moderator, and admin for several groups. I also do my best to answer questions people ask in the forums and, when I'm online and paying attention, on IRC. I occasionally participate in Drupal Stackexchange.

I am on the Drupal Association Advisory Board, after serving on the Board of Directors and as a Permanent Member of the Drupal Association General Assembly.

I have presented on Drupal theming, design, project management, and other topics at numerous Drupal events, including BADCamp 2012, DrupalCon San Francisco, DrupalCon Paris, DrupalCon Boston, DrupalCamp Colorado 2009, Drupal Design Camp Los Angeles 2011, and OSCMS 2007.

Our Pingv team maintains dozens of contributed modules and themes. I am a site architect, themer and designer. My previous company, pingVision LLC, provided expert Drupal software services, sponsored many Drupal events, and hosted Drupal meetups for 3 years.
