Welcome errant traveler....
Role at HackRVA
I am currently the Director of Communications and Planning. I also do the workshop planning for now until we find an education director. I was the president at hackrva from 2013-2015 until we went to a director model. If you ever neead assistance around hackrva, I can probably help - or point to someone that can.
I write blog posts, update the website & wiki, upload pictures, and such. If you want to work on that stuff, PLZ contact me - always need more, and its one of those jobs few want to do but is important!
