Back-end experience: LAMP (Linux, Apache, NGINX, MYSQL, PHP) + HTML5, AJAX, jQuery, JSON, GIT, shell scripts; Linux, Drush, Bash. I deliver on servers optimized for Drupal: Acquia, Aegir (Omega8), Pantheon. Local dev with Vagrant on OSX. I am still familiar with Windows & Ubuntu and use them in vbox.
Other capabilities: user experience UX wireframes, use case UML diagrams, user interface UI design, SEO, Automated Marketing, analytics implementation.
Future: I enjoy design & theming but I also enjoy coding new functionality. I hope to continue engaging users through dynamic and compelling user-centered experiences.
Community: Slowly getting involved in the Drupal community. With the recent international travel, relocation, having a baby, selling our house, I have had little time to connect & contribute.
I worked at Doubleclick/Google and helped implement and improve rich media API products for publishers. My team helped to monetize video and rich media. As I learned more about the publisher business I realized I wanted to get more involved with CMS implementation and development. I took a sabbatical to improve my CMS, LAMP, PHP, CSS & JS skills. I created Drupal sites and worked on apps for linguists and NGOs.
After Google my wife and I decided to live in Cambodia (2009-2012). We spent almost three years in SE Asia, where I was able to study new technologies and work for NGOs. My wife Kristin, as a licensed teacher, helped to start an international school for NGO and Missionary families.
My wife and I were excited to return to Colorado in late August 2012 after learning that we were expecting a baby. It's been a busy year transitioning.
OS History: I started my career on a Mac in the mid 90s, I always used both Mac & Windows for multimedia development & distribution. In the late 90s I started building NT systems for 3D/video work (while OS9 failed) so I swayed from mac to win. I used Ubuntu as my primary OS for a couple of years before returning to Mac. I prefer OSX for Linux Shell and gesture efficiency, but I use Ubuntu & win in vbox for testing.
Future: I am focused on continuing to expand my JS and PHP skills. I would like to do more with JS platforms like Backbone, Underscore.js, Twig, etc. and more OO PHP.
