Current position is at a small GIS firm called Northstar Geographics. Before that, I worked as a web developer at the University of Minnesota then as an independent web developer (mostly WordPress) for a couple of years.
My main blog (since 2004) is the PF Hyper Blog where I have reported on broadband initiatives (among other topics) in the Twin Cities and elsewhere. I manage (with co-manager Becca Vargo Daggett) the Seward Neighbors Forum, an online discussion group in Seward Neighborhood in Minneapolis. I started the Seward Profile Online News blog in 2009 for Minneapolis's Seward Neighborhood. I'm seeking funding to create a sustainable model that could be ported to any community.
I was on the Minneapolis Digital Inclusion Fund Advisory Committee through 2010 The Committee oversees and funds digital inclusion proposals in Minneapolis.
In 2001, I taught at Minneapolis Community and Technical College and established courses in HTML, CSS, and web scripting for the Electronic and Web Publishing Department. I still serve on the Department's advisory board.
While at the University, I co-founded the CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) Development work group (now the Web Standards Group) which helped in kickstarting widespread use of CSS at University of Minnesota web sites. I'm also on the Minnewebcon organizing committee which stages the University of Minnesota's yearly web conference.
I got a Masters of Public Affairs from the University of Minnesota Humphrey Institute in 2009.
I grew up on northern Minnesota's Iron Range which has a culture more akin to New York City than Minnesota Nice. (Maybe why Robert Zimmerman headed east.) Most of my life has been spent in Minneapolis.
