Personal Info


I've been building websites with Drupal since 2008 or 2009 (it's all a blur). Started with D5, upgraded to D6, have worked on a couple of sites in D7 and am currently working on a third. I'm working my way up the Drupal Ladder with the idea that I might actually be able to contribute something at some point. I'm a former systems librarian/technical services manager. Before that I was a learning management system sysadmin (Blackboard). (And that's what I do for a day job now, only Moodle instead of Blackboard.) In a former life I was a web developer and Director coder/Lingoist. I once built a content management system with Filemaker Pro. :) I'm a self-taught geek with degrees in theatre and library and information studies (go figure). I help organize the Bellingham Drupal Meetup (groups.drupal.org/bellingham) along with theMusician.
