Migrating from an igloo somewhere up in Canada, Ashok is currently a systems analyst for California Institute of the Arts, was a systems (and game) programmer for zinc Roe Design, and has been working with Drupal for the last 3 years. Starting from Drupal 4.6, he is the author of the abuse module (and looking for co-maintainers!), and has helped many maintainers in updating their contributed modules from 4.7.x -> 5.x -> 6.x. He has also helped organize Drupalcamp Toronto in 2007 and 2008 and is excited to know (and help) all in the LA Drupal Group.
In his spare time, Ashok tries to help contributed module maintainers with feature and bug requests and (with support from his lovely wife) likes to freelance to spend even more time working with Drupal and other open source technologies.
