As Drupal Technical Lead, Avi plans and builds new Drupal websites and establishes internal standards. He takes pride in collaborating with his Kanopi teammates to create technical solutions that help clients achieve their goals.
Avi came to Kanopi Studios with eleven years of Drupal experience in the higher education and agency spaces where he gained deep experience building sites for higher education, health systems, governments, and nonprofits.
He’s also committed to connecting the Kanopi Studios team with the Drupal community, where he contributes actively as one of the founding co-organizers of MidCamp and as a speaker and volunteer at camps and cons around the world.
When he’s not behind a computer, you’ll find him cooking or fermenting in his kitchen, biking around town, playing board games, and being a dad.
