I am looking forward to a great project with some outstanding professionals at Temple University in Philadelphia. I am part of the team to rebuild the primary web presence for the Fox College of Business in an updated version of WordPress, a leading and highly flexible open source Web content management system.

Theodore Roosevelt in 1887 to Today

I am working with North Studio in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada to rebuild the Boone and Crockett Club‘s historic wildlife trophy database as a modern, scaleable, and highly accessible web application. The team at North Studio is collaborating with B&C’s internal team based at their national headquarters in Missoula, Montana. It is a complex project with many moving parts including data migration of legacy trophy and hunter data, a contemporary Drupal build, and Solr search integration. My role is technical project manager and Drupal developer.

“The Boone and Crockett Club is a hunter-conservationist organization founded in the United States in 1887 by Theodore Roosevelt. In addition to authoring a famous “fair chase” statement of hunter ethics, the club worked for the expansion and protection of Yellowstone National Park and the establishment of American Conservation in general.” 2
