Personal Info


Began programming my first professional Drupal site in spring of 2008, the week Drupal 6 was released. Joined High Rock Studios as Senior Web Developer and built many complex and feature rich Drupal 7 sites. I now offer my services as a freelance Drupal site architect. Before all of that, I graduated Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Composition, after which I moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a lead-guitarist. Toured with Al Stewart, the Spencer Davis Group and Tommy Chong, and worked in the studio as a tech for Madonna, Ringo Starr and KISS. Produced CD-ROMs for Apple Computer, Adobe, and the Smithsonian, and taught these skills at UCLA, the American Film Institute and in Europe at Apple School. After producing Virtual Gettysburg, I returned to the East Coast where I founded the Antietam Battlefield Guides and authored the books, Rare Images of Antietam (2012) and Shadowing Grant (2017). I am a Drupal Developer at ICF where I work on projects for and with the Executive Office of the President, ATF, Acquia, HHS, and more.
