I'm a freelance web developer based in Ann Arbor, MI. I work with a variety of different clients to develop custom websites and applications to meet their needs. I specialize in the Drupal content management platform providing custom module and theme development, maintenance, data migration, and version upgrade services. In 2011, I received a masters degree in Human-Computer Interaction and Social Computing from the University of Michigan's School of Information. I moved to Michigan after two years working both as a reference generalist in the Multicultural Resource Center in K-State Libraries and a Technology Information Specialist in the Information Technology Assistance Center at Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS.
I earned bachelor's degrees in Anthropology and Spanish at Kansas State University, with emphases in Philosophy, International Studies, Latin American Studies, and Political Science. Since graduation I have extensively studied Integral Theory and the work of Ken Wilber. I am most interested in deepening my understanding of life through an integral lens by applying theory to the world around me.
A student of Dr. Mike Wesch, I am also largely interested and engaged in technology and the internet via a digitally ethnographic perspective. I am deeply interested in the possibilities that lie in internet/technology to transform our consuming habits, our governance, and our communities.
I strive to consume conscientiously, I walk, bike, and bus to get around, I cook and eat whole meat-free foods, I read as much as possible, I play guitar when I'm moved, I run barefoot, and I practice yoga and meditation when I've got the time.
