About me

Gravatar of Ben Clark

I am Manager of Development Operations at Jackson River. My wife Maggie and I live in Sarasota, Florida.

A brief history

I went to Florida State University (Tallahassee, Florida, USA), where I earned BS and MS degrees in Information Studies. I briefly attended Indiana University School of Library and Information Science (Bloomington, Indiana, USA) where my research interests focused on online journals (blogs).

While in college, I worked at FSU’s College of Social Sciences as a web developer. After graduation, I was hired on to be the Coordinator of Information Services.

Maggie and I moved to Washington, DC in 2010, and later that year I started working at Jackson River as a Drupal developer. In 2013, I was promoted to Manager of Development Operations.

In 2014, Maggie and I moved to Portland, Maine. After 6 months in Maine, we decided to move back to our home state of Florida.

About this site

I’ve been keeping a minimal web presence at benclark.com since I registered it in 1999. It’s gone through several iterations: a blog powered by Movable Type, a Wordpress blog, a Drupal blog, and now a Jekyll site hosted via S3.

Elsewhere in the tubes

I use my Facebook account for keeping in contact with family and close friends. My Twitter gets more usage, and I tend to post or retweet things related to my day job (e.g. Drupal development, devops). Like everyone, I have a LinkedIn profile.

I occasionally post photos to my Flickr photostream.
