I work as a Developer and Principal at Ginkgo Street Labs, a DC-based startup that focuses on helping nonprofits leverage open source and mobile technologies. We specialize in making CiviCRM easy for nonprofits. CiviCRM is an open source CRM platform that enables organizations to manage their memberships, email lists, events, donations, and more all in one place, so they can get a 360 degree view of how people are engaging with them. Specifically, we help organizations with CiviCRM maintenance, upgrades and customizations. In addition, we also help nonprofits develop mobile apps that help them achieve their mission.
I am a long-time consultant for nonprofit organizations as well as state-level government agencies. I have considerable project management and client communication expertise. I appreciate the unique technology needs of every organization. I strive to ensure that client objectives and project budgets are met through articulation and elucidation of requirements, identification and mediation of technical risks, and fine-tuned timeline adherence through project management best practices and methodologies.
I have unique experience with analytical database apps giving me the opportunity to foresee the intersection of usability and interface design, data processing, organization processes and the technology platforms that are central to the web today. While data is created in and stored in myriad technologies, I can leverage an institution's data resources no matter what legacy systems they exist in, giving them new life on the web and finding new returns on old investments.
