I am a software engineer for the OER Foundation, part of the International Centre for Open Education at Otago Polytechnic. I provide technical support for WikiEducator and the OERu. I am investigating ways to improve interoperability between open educational resources (OERs) systems. I was a developer of the eXe eLearning XHTML Editor project. I am promoting adoption of WikiEducator by teachers in New Zealand as a way to both (1) produce open educational resources that can be freely used across NZ schools and (2) strengthen networks of peers through collaboration in that development.

I have demonstrated a variety of ways to deploy WikiEducator content. I've prototyped a web service that allows exporting a collection of pages as an IMS Common Cartridge or IMS Content Package.

I have also experimented with small tweaks to OpenOffice's MediaWiki export so that it can take advantage of the WikiEducator pedagogical templates.

On IRC I generally monitor the #wikieducator channel on irc.freenode.net. You can chat with other members of the WikiEducator community using the Web chat link in the community section of the left sidebar of each page.

About Me

I am one of the founders of the Tokyo Linux Users Group and a long time Python programmer (and one of the administrators of the Starship Python). In real life I am an active radio amateur (ham radio operator) (7J1AJH, ZL2IA, AI8A). I also enjoy hiking and swimming.

I've lived in several places in the United States. I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and went to university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I worked in southwestern Michigan (St. Joseph), Los Angeles (Chatsworth), and Silicon Valley. Moving to Tokyo, Japan in 1990 got me closer to many of the manufacturers that I was working with and I enjoyed living there for about 16 years. In late 2006, I moved to Gisborne, New Zealand (map) for a couple of years to participate in the eXe project, and now the Open Education Resource movement and WikiEducator. In 2010 I had the chance to live in Te Anau (map), in the remote Fiordland corner of New Zealand. At the end of 2013 I returned to Tokyo.
