I’m a WordPress consultant and writer in Montana. I write technology pieces, journalism and non-fiction set in Montana and work as a WordPress developer for clients in Montana and around the world.
Read my articles and columns, like my Random Tech pieces, past State of the Arts Tech Talk columns for the Montana Arts Council and a series of Montana pieces I call Rocks and Bones. I used to write Mac Q & A columns for Mac and OS X users in Montana; and a short series of articles about WordPress is called Words on WordPress. My 2008-2011 archived Missoulian columns include my 225-odd Sunday Tech columns and InBusinessMonthly articles. I write occasional articles on Native American issues for The Buffalo Post.
I’m active in the arts and humanities in Montana, and served as vice-chair of the Montana Cultural and Aesthetic Trust from 2006 to 2013. I’ve received grants from the Montana Arts Council, including an individual fellowship in Photography; from Humanities Montana for writing and research; from Ucross Foundation for a writer’s residency; and a Charles Redd Center for Western Studies Independent Scholar grant.
I engineered and produced a set of CDs titled Eat Stone and Go On: The Recorded Poetry of Richard Hugo, funded by Humanities Montana and individuals. The CDs were distributed free to public libraries and schools around the state of Montana.
I’m a faculty affiliate in the University of Montana-Missoula’s Department of English and have taught composition and introductory literature classes. I also taught an Introductory Information Technology class in the Department of Computer Science. I taught creative writing in the Wilderness and Civilization Program in the Department of Forestry at UM, and I’ve taught photography in high schools through the Montana Art Council.
