Bio: 

I am focused 100% on making Drupal magic! I am not currently available for hire but you can visit my website at www.elijahlynn.net to see an outdated portfolio.

I am a humanitarian, environmentalist and technologist. I love working with open source projects specifically Ubuntu, Inkscape, GIMP, PHP, MySQL, Git, & of course Drupal! I think the Drupal community is amongst the most robust and respectful of all the open source communities I have been involved in.

I started using Ubuntu around 2007/2008 and from there have progressed to utilizing it for everything I do. I built my first website in 1999, in 2002 went on to become a locksmith for 5 years and in 2008 political activism pushed me to form a team to launch the Ron Paul Blimp for that election season. (I am now politically apathetic again & think the voting system needs a major overhaul before any real change can take place. My political activism will probably be spent in that area when I get charged again.) I started using Drupal in late 2008 after using Joomla for a year or so prior to that.
