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. While there, I started an initiative to move all the departmental sites to Drupal.
I started working at Jackson River in August 2010.
About this site
Despite my day job as a Drupal developer, I’ve chosen to publish my personal site using Jekyll, a Ruby-based tool that generates static HTML files. It has no database or application layer requirements, and as a result is exceptionally performant. For a site that doesn’t change with any regularity or frequency, Drupal (or any other CMS) is overkill.
As of January 2013, I have moved the content of this site to an Amazon S3 bucket. It had been previously hosted on a Linode VPS (2009-2013), and Dreamhost shared hosting before that.
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.
