I'm a Drupal geek, living in beautiful Durango, CO with my wife and two young sons. I graduated from Fort Lewis College (FLC) with a Computer Science degree in 2000, then honed my skills in Seattle for seven years. I love the shared knowledge aspect of Open Source technology, and have been hooked since I got my first taste of Linux and Perl CGI scripts at FLC. I now specialize in Drupal development and have expertise with Drupal site audits, minor and major upgrades, custom site builds, data migrations, development processes, and a bit of custom theming.
"Come for the code, stay for the community" is one of the "Drupal-isms" that really resonates with me. I feel fortunate to have such a great set of tools - and information - available, and the superb community makes me want to jump in and make it better! I have been "using" Drupal for 6-7 years now, and over the last year or two I have been testing and contributing code patches, providing help in various IRC channels (benjf), and recently started maintaining a module on drupal.org (Tag User). I have attended the last three North American DrupalCons - San Francisco, Chicago, and Denver - along with a couple DrupalCamp Colorado's and the Pacific NW Drupal Summit in Portland. Finally, along with a handful of others, I am doing my best to grow and contribute to the Durango Drupal User's Group.
