In 2008 I came onboard the newly formed Bigshinyrobot.com. This was a geek news & reviews website my friend Lucas Ackley had created with Bryan Young. I originally was writing weekly gadget articles and picking up news that interested me. As the site grew, I started working to onboard new writers and editing their articles. I also created training videos for our custom CMS, as well as shorter clips to solve simple problems that writers often ran into.
While I’ve stepped back from the writing side I’m still involved in the podcast, which I occasionally edit, as well as our event planning. Big Shiny Robot runs a yearly “Nerd Swap Meet” with the Bohemian Brewery and is planning different events. I assist in these efforts wherever I can.
