About

I'm not a huge fan of self-advertisement, but I believe in helping others. My hope is that people can somehow benefit from some things I learn and post to the site.


To share a little about myself:

I am a proud husband and father to two daughters and a doggie. I live in Pennsylvania in the United States. I have a MS in Information Systems and Security from Penn State University and a BS from Juniata College. I currently serve on their IT/CS Board. And, I've intermittently been an adjunct professor for both PSU and JC.

I currently work for Acquia as a Director of Engineering. Its an amazing company and an incredible team to be a part of. In the past, I have worked in digital agencies, done some public sector work, held both leadership and development roles, and promote learning every where I go.

I am an active contributor in the Drupal community and believe in the power of open source and communities. You will routinely find me at Drupal community events, helping run SimplyTest.me as the lead, and contribute where possible.

Along with my friend Joel Pheasant, I co-founded a company called Sun Lab Media.

I love craft beer, coffee, running, and spending time with my family and friends.


Here are a few topics that have been on my mind recently:

  • DevOps and CI/CD
  • Leadership and Culture
  • Developer Experience and Evangelism
  • Product Development and Engineering
