Plone business specialist and evangelist with a serious customer-service focus. Interested in helping promote Plone outside of our traditional markets to new kinds of customers.

Who am I.

I have spent the last 6 years at Six Feet Up promoting Plone and becoming an open-source evangelist. I first started as a project manager, then quickly got promoted to Director of Hosting Services and am currently the Director of Client Relationships. All day long I help our clients in their quest for the perfect technology to support their web projects.

Why I’m interested.

I believe Plone is one of the best open source CMS’ on the market but one of the less effectively promoted. I would like to represent the viewpoint of non-developers and be the bridge between developers in the Plone community and end-users. End-users have a unique set of concerns about using Plone that is not often heard during the technical discussions around Plone. 

What I Bring.

After a year serving as the Vice President of the Plone Foundation, I have a solid understanding of the responsibilities and processes that power the organization. I have been assisting with meeting coordination and have been the liaison between the treasurer and the Board to make sure that funding requests are addressed diligently. I am known for bringing a voice of common sense and reason to board discussions.

As any professional card herder, I will ensure a good knowledge transfer between the previous members and the new ones.
