My official title at my day job is “Web Services Manager.” I keep trying to get my boss to change my title to “Solutions Architect.” I argued that the latter is just nebulous enough that I can stir stuff up in any area that I want. Come to think of it, that’s probably why he’s not too keen on the idea.

I work at one of the best Christian universities in the U.S., the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. It’s okay if you haven’t heard of us before… now you have. It also happens to be my alma mater. It really is a cool thing to work for your alma mater. There’s automatically a sense of purpose and belonging. It also brings great joy to have them pay back what you paid in.

Before university life, I was the Director of Communications and Technology for a large church in Central Texas.

Some of the things that I’m passionate (or at least knowledgeable) about are:

  • Web Development (PHP, CSS, JavaScript, etc)
  • General IT Management (Virtualization, Basic Networking, etc)
  • Single Sign On (SAML, Shibboleth, and Hashed Tokens, oh my)
  • Digital Signage

I’m a techie volunteer with my awesome church. We just built a new building, and we’ve recently launched a swanky new Web site.

I’m also a child advocate with Compassion International. Here’s the deal, friends – Compassion is legit. They walk the walk. They’re full of integrity, and they honestly do what they say – rescue children from poverty in Jesus’ name. I invite you to check them out, and possibly sponsor a child today.
