Hi everyone,

My name is MaPortrait of Max standing between some bookcases wearing a blue button up shirt.x Bronsema. Thank you for checking out my blog.

Presently I am employed at the fabulous Western Washington University (WWU) in Bellingham, WA. At WWU I am honored to hold the title Director of Web Communication Technologies. I work with a talented team to push our web platforms to new heights. Previously I was the lead Drupal Architect where I led a small student team developing innovative Drupal solutions for the public facing sites at WWU. We currently run a growing suite of sites off an Aegir 3 installation and our build process leverages Jenkins CI and Behat.  Of the sites I am involved with at WWU the majority are now Drupal 8, ready for Drupal 9 and we continue to migrate the remaining Drupal 7 sites.

In the past I worked as a Drupal developer at the University of Oregon. There I I worked a lot with Drupal 6 & 7, Aegir, Red Hat Linux, and MySQL administration. I also taught HTML/CSS at Lane Community College in Eugene.

I enjoy cars, motorcycles, computers, business theory, teaching, economics, and the environment. By day I work to serve students and at night I use my superpowers of sleep to rest for the next day.
