What is your role at your station?
I manage the Interactive and IT departments at KCTS 9.
What's new at your station?
KCTS 9 is currently going through a strategic planning process that is expected to wrap up later this fiscal year.
How did you get involved with Public Media?
I first got involved as a volunteer for Northwest Public Radio when I was a student at Washington State University.  I graduated from the Murrow School of Communications and then promptly got side-tracked with overseas travel for a couple of years.  I started working in IT during the .com boom and have continued working in IT.  I was hired as KCTS 9's IT Manager in 2006 and promoted to Technology Director in 2008.
If the Internet didn't exist, what job would you have?
If the Internet didn't exist, I might be a documentary producer. 
What is your favorite gadget and why?
I recently switched from using a Blackberry to using an iPhone.  What a difference!  The iPhone has so many more useful features.
