I have in the past at Penn State University on various research projects. Currently working on side projects that focus on open data models and sharing of linked semantic data for construction of Open Education Resources (OER).
Journeyman with RDF, OWL, and SPARQL. Advanced skills with XML, IA, OOD and relational modeling. When I found OWL and RDF I realized what I've been working towards all these years.
Make contact with others interested in Semantic Technologies. When I asked people about these topics I get a lot of blank looks.... this is still pretty cutting edge and an awareness of how (and why) to apply these techniques is still in its infancy
I will be happy to present topics and occasionally visit, but I live in Portland so I can't promise too much heavy organizing. I will cheer you on from afar. :)
Happy to be a guest presenter; can help as a workshop facilitator depending on scheduling.
Software Engineer and all-around tech enthusiast. 15 years of data modeling and development of data-centric applications. Open source software and open data advocate.
