Front End (& Drupal) Development
Designing & developing for the front end of the web is my first passion. Adapting these techniques into Drupal is my second. I’ve been developing website for over 10 years, and have been developing for Drupal for over six years. I've attended and presented at several Drupalcamps and Drupalcons. I’m also the co-organizer of the local Gainesville area Drupal users group, and am a member of the Drupal Association.
Systems & Network Admin
I work as a sys admin at the Florida High School Athletic Association. I work with Active Directory, Exchange, IIS, Drupal and Linux on a daily basis. I frequently break things and then I fix them. I also love networking and hold several certs including MCSA and CCNA.
UX Fanatic & Designer
I am obsessive about user experience. The combination of psychology and computers make the UX field fascinating.
There's nothing more annoying than a slow website. Sites cannot be fast enough- and this includes my own (5 HTTP requests and counting...). I love tinkering with Varnish, Memcached, Redis, APC, my.cnf and httpd.conf's. And, most of all, I'm obsessive about front-end performance.
When I’m not in front of a computer…
You can find me hanging out with my beautiful wife and daughter, fishing, hiking, using my telescope (a Celestron orange tube C8), hanging with my golden retriever mix, or doing anything outdoors. I am also the ultimate tailgating enthusiast and Florida Gator fanatic.
