Yes, this is a slightly obscure Portland referenceI never could have guessed that when I moved from Colorado to Portland, Oregon, it would result in my joining the OSTraining team.

By happy circumstance, just as I was completely burning out as a freelance consultant and dropping all my clients, Steve and Rod came to Portland for a Drupal conference.

We met for dinner at a restaurant in my part of Portland and they offered to save me by making an offer I couldn't refuse.

2014 was my first full year working here, and I couldn't be happier. It's been such a privilege to work with this group of talented, smart and just plain nice people.
