I've been active with the Drupal community since 2003, with specialties in infrastructure, architecture, scalability, and high-performance engineering. A co-founder and CTO of Chapter Three until 2010, I then founded Pantheon, a professional platform for Drupal and Wordpress.

I was a co-founder of the DeanSpace project during the 2003 Howard Dean presidential campaign, and used that technology to help start and run Music for America, a national non-profit promoting progressive politics and participation. After the 2004 election cycle and before starting Chapter Three, I worked with several campaign organizations and nascent consultancies and founded the Drupal Dojo, an online learning community for developers.

I also hold a B.F.A. in Drama from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, have been blogging since 2001 at, and am a published author.
