BJ on Drupal: I was introduced to Drupal by ImagexMedia’s own Shea Mckinney back in 2007. I was immediately hooked.
I love the fact that a talented open source community can produced a superior product.
Drupal is simple and easy to use, yet incredibly powerful, and Drupal has proven this by it’s rapid adoption by large companies with complex requirements.
BJ’s Travels: In addition to living in Sweden, I have also lived in Indonesia and traveled the world quite extensively. Living as a local in different countries has been a life changing experience for me. Learning new languages and integrating into different cultures has taught me to look at life with new perspective. I will always travel and continue to discover the world.
