About RJ

Welcome to my web log.  I make it a point to write about my work here and provide insight into the challenges and experiences as I work with new systems, software and people.  I am currently based in Junction City, KS. I design, develop and deploy deliverables that meet my client's needs from my home office on my trusty iMac.  I love working with the Concrete5 Content Management System.  I am a member of the Concrete5.org Peer Review Board and I am a Community Leader.

I use a number of tools to do-what-I-do; as they say.  I have a write up on my current tech stack here.

I am a PROUD Army Wife.  When I am not working on my latest and greatest project, I am kept busy by my two small ones and Lani: The Wonder Dog.  I am an active member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated and love that I am able to use my talents as my sisters and I work to serve our communities.

Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss a new project.
