Recently I’ve gone from Zero to Drupal, and moved from managing an HTML/PHP based collection of static web pages to planning, designing, and implementing a responsive, Drupal 7-based website for the North Carolina Division of Parks & Recreation. The site is the Division’s primary web presence, and highlights park information, events, and activities.

Developing the NC State Parks website gave me the opportunity to work in nearly all the roles associated with website development and management: project management, platform research, requirements analysis, stakeholder identification, team building and team leadership; creating development plan and schedule, requirements matrix, user surveys, user stories, wireframe, site diagram; building the site itself, testing, providing the content and graphic design; and finally managing the site on a day-to-day basis as an administrator, content manager, and user support specialist. I also worked closely with backend developers and theming specialists to give the Division an attractive, easy-to-use site that will serve them well today and into the future. See my resume for more information about this project.

I’m currently learning to develop WordPress sites—so that was my choice for my personal website. I plan to update some tables-based websites I developed to responsive WordPress sites.
