Since 2009, I've contributed to the accessibility enhancements adopted by the Drupal community, including improvements in Drupal 7 core. I've also presented at DrupalCamp Toronto & Montreal and organized meetups and events showcasing Drupal in government. I've played a leadership role in the Ottawa Drupal Users Group and am contributing to our first Drupal Camp.
