DRUPAL ENGINEER

As a Drupal Engineer for Oomph, I collaborate with the other talented developers, designers, and project managers to provide clients with innovative solutions to storing and displaying their content.

I have worked with Drupal at two different universities, first as a content manager and then as a developer. Most notably, I built out new features for a data catalog based entirely in Drupal and created tools for researchers to manage their citations at a public health institute affiliated with the University of Washington. For the University of California at Berkeley, I helped maintain the Library’s web presence and wrote applications to assist with third-party integrations.

An East Coast native, I worked in special libraries and public libraries in Baltimore before heading to the other side of the US. I spent 7 years in Seattle and followed the lure of the surf down south to the San Francisco Bay Area. In my free time, I can be found reading my latest book club pick or meandering along a coastal trail.

I'm most proud of the brilliant thinkers at Oomph.

Quatre is my favorite word.

When I was living on a sail boat I learned how to navigate the Salmon Bay Locks.
