Niagara Falls, Canada

I have a passion for the web and social media. Used right it is such an amazing avenue to talk with people to get your message out whether that be customers or just sharing your passion. Get rid of the spin, cut the bullshit and be authentic. Life's a trip and if you think you have everything under control, think again! Everything can change in a moment. And it did! The journey to learning never stops. I'm a blend of tech geek, Joomla Jockey, tree hugger and rock n roller! Though I play no music, I can't imagine my life without it.

Many years ago I was at my computer store waiting to speak to the owner who was talking to another fellow. The other fellow (Bob) was looking for a designer and my computer guy (Chris) introduced us. Bob was working with this great CMS and did I have any experience with it. No I didn't. While things didn't proceed well with Bob, I did start building websites using Joomla 1.5. Since I'm not a programmer Joomla has allowed me to offer my clients more functionality than if I was building static HTML sites. This became even more important to me after a surgery several years back left me with a "brain fog" where I could still design but really technical or code related things left me stumped. In 2012 I first hooked up with JUG Toronto and found out about the community and have made many wonderful friends since.


I'm pleased to count many Joomlers amoungst my closest friends.


 


I am currently the Joomla Social Media Team - Team Lead, Admin on the Facebook No Spam group, Joomla Events Team - Team Lead (transitioning to member), Joomla Design Team - Assitant.
