While majoring in a cross-disciplinary program called Digital Media Design Tory picked up a variety of experience in object-oriented programming – and the realization that design was not so much her forte. Maintaining appreciation for the visual nonetheless, she soon found her niche in web development via a couple of summer internships. After graduating, Tory boarded the Drupal bandwagon via her first full-time position and was soon writing custom modules and themes alongside honing front-end development skills. Several years later, she has many Drupal 6 and 7 websites under her belt for clients such as the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the American Postal Workers Union. Tory is known for getting intimate with the Drupal core APIs and writing paragraph-length code comments.
