For the last 15 years, I’ve dedicated my career to morally responsible computer architecture by making safe, reliable, and useful software for education and journalism. I believe technology should only contribute to society and human well-being. The privacy of citizens is one of the most important aspects of good software practice - our tech should not spy on us.
University of Arizona Libraries 2014 - present
As an Applications Development Programmer, I create and maintain software for the University of Arizona Libraries’ Tech Services/Strategies (TeSS) department including learning tools, digital collections, database portals, repository access and metadata analysis, as well as the main Libraries’ website.
Wick Newspaper Properties 2012 - 2014
Tucson Newspapers Incorporated (Gannett Enterprises) 2008 - 2012
Foundry Digital Design 2007 - 2008
Foundry was my first entrepreneurial venture to profit from my skills as a Technologist/Developer. I had ~30 client properties that I developed and hosted, using PHP/Linux/Apache (LAMP). I was one of the original members of the first Tucson Wordpress Meetup, Tucson Digital Arts Community, and what eventually became the first Tucson co-working space at 115 S. Broadway. (We could never get rid of the cockroaches.)
