I am a committer on the Apache Taverna project and a former aerospace engineer and programmer/analyst. I also have a master's degree in education and a preliminary secondary teaching credential. I've taken many courses on Udemy and Lynda.com, including API documentation, JavaScript, and Python (in progress).

I am active in my local chapter of the Society for Technical Communication and am the chapter secretary.

Recently I used WordPress to create Celiac Safe Eats to help people with celiac disease (and other gluten sensitivities) share safe places to eat. I also created this portfolio website from scratch using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

I blog about technical communication at Communicating Technically and occasionally about education at k12mathpassion.
