Over a year ago, I wrote an article comparing Remember the Milk and Toodledo. Somehow, it’s still the most popular article on this site, and yet and I can’t believe (or at least I hope) that it’s no longer accurate. I stopped using Remember the Milk shortly after writing that article and I stopped using Toodledo about 3 months ago.
I hold a Master’s of Science in Information Sciences and Technology and a Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical Engineering with a Minor in Business. Both degrees were awarded by The Pennsylvania State University.
My thesis, entitled The Insight Project: Serverless Synchronization of Data for Personal Information Management Software, implemented what could be considered a personal cloud storage system for personal information. Begun just before “Cloud Computing” became a meaningful catchphrase, the project demonstrated a peer-to-peer alternative to what we now think of as cloud synchronization solutions for programs like Outlook.
I’m currently a web software engineer at Barefoot Books using PHP to integrate our site with third-party Microsoft Web Services.
Before starting at Barefoot, I did some freelance work for Conceptual Symmetry, contributing in small part to firstcomesfashion.com, theenergyproject.com, and to a larger extent, Penn State's Department of Geography.
During my time at Penn State, I was a consultant and supervisor at one of the ITS Help Desks. As a consultant, I provided phone, walkup, and, eventually, email support to members of the Penn State community on computer problems ranging from dial-up networking to virus removal to email to networking. As a supervisor, I made sure my employees did my former job.
Though I have a day job with Barefoot, I’m continuing to do occasional freelance work. This fall, I migrated edendaleentertainment.com to Drupal Gardens and just before Christmas, I relaunched stpaulsfleetwood.com as a Drupal 7 site (previously, it had been built using one of those kits that bookstores sold back in the late 90s). The St. Paul’s site is very much still a work in progress as I worked on a Drupal 6 version throughout last year, got fed up with it December and rolled the D7 version in about 5 days. Upcoming changes include better use of Features, a Church directory, and a new theme.
While my current focus is on stpaulsfleetwood.com, I’m available to setup and manage small sites in Drupal Gardens. For more information, send me an email.
