|Objective:||Employment in an organization that utilizes my deep technical expertise combined with my love of the humanities and understanding of the desires of the end-user; ideally within a consumer-facing online product whose mission I value and agree with.|
|Summary:||Expert of interdisciplinary information technology in the media industry, with strong proficiencies in web development, new media graphics, and traditional writing and journalism. I have worked extensively in Drupal from 4.7 through 7, but may be the only developer in New York who legitimately enjoys spending time neck-deep in code and communicating with the customer equally.|

In my free time, I draw with pen and ink, and digitally color my artwork. If I had more free time, I would work on some of the animations I started years ago.
I have played the piano for about 20 years, about eight years on the guitar, and six years playing the baritone horn. I am still not very good at any of them, but I sight-read well. I once performed Bruce Springsteen's Thunder Road on my guitar at the NY State Capitol.
Once, I used to live with a Chinese family that let me stay there for free. I learned how to say a variety of things in Mandarin, which has helped me countless times at Chinese restaurants. Similarly, I studied French for 4 years in college and believed, until a recent trip to France, that I had forgotten it all. Finally, I have been studying Japanese since mid-2011 and can beg people to "excuse me" quite fluently.
