I am a web designer and developer with full-time experience since 1998. I have worked with Drupal since the DeanSpace project in 2003. I have contributed numerous projects of my own and contributed to numerous others as well. I also contribute in the issue queues, IRC, the Drupal Slack group and have also been involved with the Drupal Diversity & Inclusion group. I try to get to DrupalCon as often as I can and have been to several so far.
In addition to my work, I am also very involved in politics and read at least fifty articles per day on average (I jokingly refer to politics as the only sport that I follow). I also have a passion for photography, especially architectural photography, much of which can be found on my Flickr page. I'm also an avid pool player and back in the day was heavily involved in the 3D graphics community (especially 3D Star Trek set renderings).
A Different Kind of Bio:
I was once asked to describe who I am without relying on the usual crutches - where I'm from, what I do, what I like, etc. I'm not sure I ever really fully accomplished it but I'll make an attempt to do so now.
I am thoughtful and even a bit introverted at times. When I want to be, I can be quite an extrovert. I find my self constantly amused and intrigued by the world around me. I am intensely inquisitive - I never stopped asking why.
I am creative. My mind never stops wandering; I'm always coming up with new ideas or polishing old ones. I am something of a dreamer. I love the realm of big ideas; I'm always thinking of ways to inspire people towards my ultimate goal of leaving the world a better place than I found it.
I am a Jeffersonian at heart; I believe that people are inherently good, and we must only seek ways to draw out the greatness already present in them. I believe in the idea of government as a tool to accomplish this. I believe strongly in the power of a few committed individuals to change the world.
I am adventurous. My insatiable curiosity drives me to seek out new and interesting experiences and ideas. I am known for randomly deciding to take off halfway across the city just to check out something I'd read about. I become restless and bored easily - I have to keep myself busy, either discovering, creating, writing, reading, or just meeting people.
