Front End Drupal and WordPress Developer

Front End Web Development & Theming

I am a creative technologist with over 20 years of experience, with a background in film, photography, and urban design. I've got a keen eye for graphic design and an unparalleled attention to detail, which is what led me to web development at the turn of the century.

Drupal (7, 8, and now 9) and WordPress are my passions, but I also enjoy building sites in plain old PHP.  Lately I've been digging into decoupled solutions using Gatsby and Next.  I've always been great at communicating complex technical issues to clients, and I love helping people achieve their online goals.

I have lived in the Seattle area since 1993, having migrated from Western New York to attend graduate school.  For the past few years (pandemic time aside), I have been volunteering as a projectionist (digital and 35mm) at the Grand Illusion, Seattle's oldest continually-running cinema.  We've got two of the very few remaining 35mm projectors in regular service in the Seattle area!

Earlier in life I received a Bachelor of Arts in Media Study from the State University of New York at Buffalo and a Master of Urban Planning from the University of Washington. I am a bass player and songwriter, and I recently released an album with my band, Mysterious Face. I am also an avid photographer, hoping to continue work on my Junk Drawers project, which is just as it sounds: a series of photos of people’s junk drawers.
