I'm a technologist mostly database and web stuff with a smattering of IT management. My background before that is in technical theatre. I worked for over 10 years as the Crafts Superviser for the Shakespeare Theatre in DC.
I was a VISTA Volunteer for one year with Teaming for Technology DC
which operated out of The Support Center, a non profit providing
counsulting and training to other non profits. The Support Center sadly
is out of business. As a VISTA I worked primarily to provide non
profits with custom database solutions and I also did some talks on IT
planning. I also began researching new technologies and started to
get interested in how they affect the community.
After my VISTA year I worked as the database person for The Survivors' Fund out of Northern Virginia Family Services. We provided case management services to the survivors and families of the victims of the 9/11 attack on the pentagon.
I now work as the IT/office manager for the American Humanist
Association. I primarily do database work and website work, and manage
a small number of computers and users. It's a great place to work with
a wonderful staff.
I'm interested in Privacy and Civil Liberties and how the internet
affects politics and society in general. I recently wrote an article on
RFID for The Humanist and I'm doing research on other technology
isssues that affect privacy and civil liberties.
