What are your areas of interest?

Drupal, PHP, javascript/jquery, responsive design, and making things pretty and user-friendly

Working on any interesting projects at the moment?

Just about finished a project that will significantly boost planning work for homeless services - dev site can be found at Getting ready for a redesign of an online social service directory at

What's your "dream project" - what would you build if you had unlimited time, skill, and resources?

The perfect donor database - an open source platform to be installed on one's own web server - for nonprofits. Something like CiviCRM but really, really easy to use and mobile-friendly. Or a microblogging platform with geocoding/mapping for local gardeners to exchange gardening tips, seeds/starts/cuttings, excess produce, etc. Or creating something like Project Zero (dev site at for the National Alliance to End Homelessness so that leaders in homeless services from around the nation can exchange ideas and best practices. Or a million other things.


I work to end homelessness by day and do web design (Chickweed Media) by night. Professional noob. :) I'm passionate about making web technology accessible to small nonprofits, businesses, and community groups.
