Brief Bio[]

I have twelve years of experience in the Internet field. In the 1990's I worked as a consultant with Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) and Inforte Corporation in Chicago. Before venturing out on my own, I served as the Director of Programming at Pop Art, Inc. in Portland, OR. In addition to GreenRenter and MomHub, I now operate as a web developer and Internet consultant under the guise of Level Online Strategy.


  • Online: Been making my living here developing websites the last dozen years or so.
  • Open Source: Spent most of my career on the Microsoft stack, and switch to OSS about 2 years ago. I found myself reinvigorated and energized by the communities, tools, and platforms that opened up to me. I currently focus on Drupal, where I contribute patches and modules, although I also dabble in RnR.
  • Programming: PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, C#, MySql, MS SQL, RnR, etc...
  • Teaching: Not much experience, but I'm happy to pass along any knowledge I have.
