Experience and Interests
Based in Southeast Asia since 2008, I've worked on publishing projects focused on English-speaking markets. I use and support open source software and open content publishing.
- 24 years of network engineering and technical web
- 10 years of publishing experience (digital, print)
- 7 years of university teaching
My interests are primarily education, publishing, and open source software. We have two small children so early childhood development and healthy living are important to our family. I am a technologist, a writer, a husband and father.
