Drupal Contributions: 

My first contribution was the Airy Blue theme, and my first core patch was refreshing the node.tpl.php template for Drupal 7). I now maintain a variety of projects (modules and themes) and help with many more.

I work a lot with Ansible and DevOps-related infrastructure development. I'm even writing a book on it (see Ansible for DevOps). If you want to get started with Ansible and Drupal really quickly, grab the Drupal Development VM I use (built with Ansible) and take it for a spin.

I'm actively involved in the St. Louis Drupal group, and love connecting with and mentoring other Drupal users.
