Hi, I'm Justin. I began learning about the web with a workshop in Grad school on HTML and CSS. Then I didn't use it for a while as a Reference Librarian. Back in 2012 I started working with Jacksonville Public Library's websites. At first I worked with old school HTML and CSS like I encountered in that workshop.

We transitioned our public website to Drupal 7 in 2016. Since then I have attended multiple DrupalCamps and several local coding Meetups exposing myself to many new technologies.  I updated that website to BackdropCMS.

In 2018 management of the library website moved to the marketing department from the technology department.  During my time in marketing I have learned much more about analytics and search engine optimization.

The library began a podcast, Completely Booked, in 2018.  I began producing it for the second season and continued until COVID-19 closed the library in March 2020.

In August of 2020 I started working for the Academy of Model Aeronautics.  I manage several websites using WordPress, BackdropCMS, and Drupal.

I maintain multiple contributed modules ported from Drupal 7 for BackdropCMS.

I also play trombone and earned my Eagle Scout in Troop 91 from McArthur, Ohio.
