About

Hi. I'm Mike, and I love what I do.

I work as a front-end developer, working with mostly Drupal-based sites. I contribute to open source projects, which includes being the lead developer and maintainer of the new default theme for Drupal core, called Olivero

I currently work as a senior front-end web developer at AVB Digital, where I work on re-platforming SBA.gov to Drupal 9. I'm also on the board of directors of the Drupal Association, in a community elected at-large position.

I'm also very involved with local web-dev communities. I organize the Gainesville Front-end Developers Meetup, Gainesville BarCamp, and the annual Florida DrupalCamp conference.

Outside of computers, I'm the father of the kickassest little girl young woman you can imagine. I also have a deep appreciation for nature. At any given point in time, I'd rather be hiking, fishing, or hammocking. I also love good food and a good beer.

I also have an awesome telescope (a vintage Celestron orange tube C8) from which I look at the clouds of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn. I enjoy hanging with my two dogs (a golden retriever mix, and a chocolate lab), and I am also a huge tailgating enthusiast and Florida Gator fanatic.
