The Foundation supplements and supports the City of Tucson Parks & Recreation’s programs, services, and capital projects: particularly for children, at-risk youth, seniors, and the disabled.
In my years in Tucson I’ve enjoyed the beautiful parks, sports fields, attending a wide variety of events — so I’m proud and happy to give back to the cause.
Since the website is powered by WordPress, naturally my role includes webmaster duties (grin). More broadly, I’m serving on the marketing and promotion committee: helping to communicate and engage with our community via social media, the website, email, and other traditional channels.
Are you a non-profit in Tucson or Southern Arizona? I’d love to interview you briefly on how you use your website to collect payments, such as donations and member dues. Please contact me if you’re interested in chatting about this.
Located in the historic Rialto Building at Tucson’s hottest corner, 5th and Congress, Connect is redefining the local coworking landscape. It’s a big step up from previous offerings—in many ways. If you haven’t been in yet, schedule a visit to see it for yourself.
A few recent photos from work and life at Connect.

The focus for the 3.2 release was making WordPress faster and lighter. Highlights include a new distraction-free writing mode, a completely refreshed admin UI, faster updates (only updating files that changed), support dropped for IE6, PHP 4, and MySQL 4, and the new default theme, Twenty Eleven.
I work there once a week—usually on Friday—and love the quite, productive atmosphere, fast WiFi, and the ability to connect with like-minded individuals (learn more about coworking). It’s also within walking distance of three areas: Downtown, 4th Avenue, and University Boulevard, all of which offer great choices for lunch or a post-work happy hour.
You should come try it out if you live in the area. Your first visit is free!
