I am a web developer and project manager living in the Seattle area. My specialties include UX design and strategy, Drupal web development (front-end and back-end), accessibility, and information design. I'm adept at managing client expectations, guiding project committees, and keeping development teams on task.
In August 2020 I started working as a Technical Strategist at Advomatic, joining a team of technical experts who build, maintain, and support websites for mission-driven clients. In July 2021, we merged with Four Kitchens, where I've continued this role. I provide technical oversight for Drupal projects and strategic support for Continuous Care clients. Our clients include non-profit, higher ed, and governmental organizations.
For many years, I oversaw a content management framework for the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Washington. The initial offering served humanities departments. It was successful enough that we expanded the service to the other three divisions: arts, natural sciences, and social sciences. Our small team supported over 30 sites and over 200 editors. I regularly worked with cross-functional teams that included marketing specialists, stakeholders, content owners, and graphic designers.
Earlier in my career I was employed as a web developer and adaptive technology consultant at UCLA, where I developed websites in Drupal, Plone, and WordPress and advised about accessibility and adaptive software. I completed a Ph.D. in English literature at UCLA in 2008, writing a dissertation on 18th- and 19th-century British gothic drama. During graduate school I taught literature and composition courses, served as an instructional technology consultant for faculty, and designed websites for many centers and student organizations.
