Languages spoken: 

Technical architect, strategist, and speaker with more than 17 years of IT experience in a variety of technical and client-facing roles. I have a broad background including PHP, Drupal 4-8 code and theming, server administration, technical project management, information architecture, sales and proposal writing, public speaking, and client relations.

In my > 13 years working with Drupal, I've gotten to lead site builds and support for large clients such as the Cato Institute, Redbox, Cornell University, Intel, the EPA, Oxfam International, and United Way. I've given sessions at > 10 Drupalcons, and often speak/keynote/session at other Drupal events around the world. I'm also one of the authors of the Drupalcon "prenote" event that kicks off each conference.

I'm a Principal Software Engineering Manager with Microsoft, solving problems using open source software, and contributing everything back.
