I am a senior Web developer who joined Simbios in January 2011. My responsibilities are to maintain the SimTK.org Web site and to improve the site's user experience and social networking. I have designed, developed and maintained Web sites since 1994, primarily in the news and media fields. I have worked for several regional, national and international media companies including the San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and the Associated Press. Prior to joining Simbios, I was a lecturer at San Francisco State University, teaching upper division courses in Web design, multimedia and online journalism.
