I am a senior developer at Room 214. I have developed and maintained our own blogging software Post Zinger, which powers all Travel Channel blogs and numerous others. I developed everything from server setup and architecture, to HTML and CSS design. Room 214 is a Social Media and Word of Mouth Marketing powerhouse, and as a result I spend a lot of time playing with Twitter, StumbleUpon, Digg, FiltrBox, Unbound Technologies APIs to creatively use them. In my spare time I enjoy Rock Climbing, Photography and Meeting people.
