My name is slantview or "Steve Rude" as known by my mother, father, sister and girlfriend. I have been involved in Drupal since 2006 and I own a consulting / development firm called Slantview Media. I have been a lead developer for some very large Drupal projects such as divx.com, mylifetime.com, sinatra.com and more. I have a great deal of experience tuning and optimizing Drupal sites and have had the opportunity to work with many great Drupalers as well at my former job as a Lead Developer for Achieve Internet. I am the author of the Cache Router module and am actively involved in high performance / scalability projects such as memcache. I am also active and interested in usability, and media handling.
You can find me as slantview on drupal.org, at my blog, tweeting away, or drinking PBR at a local San Diego dive bar ;) I am a musician and Geek and I like long walks on the beach, pirates, zombies, guns, kittens, internet memes, etc.
