drupal developer/themer and artist
Welcome to i heart interwebz, a site that's a combo of my portfolio of recent works (mostly Drupal stuff) and a blog that's more often than not, focused on Drupal-y things. How-to's that I've put together or little things that I've come across that might help other Drupal developers or themers out.
A little about myself... I have a BA in Printmaking from Ball State University and a MA in Digital Media Studies from the University of Denver. I've always had a passion for art and continue to paint, draw, and create prints when I can, but have managed to combine my creative side with the technical to become a Drupal Developer and Themer as a full-time job. Read more about me through my resume.
After completing an internship at the Open Media Foundation in Denver, I fell in love with Drupal and ran with it. I got a job as a Junior Designer at Page 1 Solutions and quickly moved to the role of Drupal Admin in which I troubleshooted our platform on Aegir. I then moved over to a Developer role, then to a Senior Developer role where I trained and mentored the design team in all things Drupal and helped the company with protocols for site development. I now live in Chicago and am currently working at the University of Chicago as a Web Manager, building in Drupal 7 and managing content, information architecture, and helping determine best use practices for our new website.
Long-term goals include doing more non-profit work. Having completed my internship at OMF, I have learned that making a real difference for people is very fullfilling.
