By day, I'm the Learning Platform Administrator at the Stanford Graduate School of Business where I work to develop and execute their vision for a comprehensive learning environment. By night, I play violin in an awesome orchestra. Being a geek, I'm not afraid of the command line or a custom Android ROM. Being a "connector," I thrive by engaging campus and open source communities. I slogged my way through a PhD in Journalism & Mass Communication with a fun topic -- copyright and social theory.
