I've been an open source and online community developer since the late '90s. I've worked on Kete, the ArsDigita Community System, OpenACS, and numerous other software projects.

In 2005 I moved to Wellington, New Zealand from the United States. That year I also began working for Katipo Communications. I'm the lead technical developer for the Kete open source project and have been since its inception. I currently specialize in Ruby and Ruby on Rails applications, especially those with emphasis on community based functionality.
