I have been a professional technologist since 1994 and specialize in Linux/Networking technologies.
In 2014, I ran for Indiana Secretary of State, at the time I had been using CiviCRM and put a lot of work into using it as a fund raising base. I had also previously done a lot of tech with a marketing company and decided I wanted to combine some knowledge and build a Civi app that would belong in the hands of the activist on the street instead of back office. A number of things caused me to shelve that, but now (2021) I am back at it.
CiviCRM is an equalizer for non profits and candidates that do not have large budgets. I have never stopped advocating this, and look forward to working with the CiviCRM community.
