Surrey Drupal Meetup

I'm currently the Lead Organizer for the Surrey Drupal Meetup located in Greater Vancouver, Canada. I organize monthly user group meetings where speakers present on Drupal topics. I also arrange co-working events. On May 10, 2012, I gave a presentation on how I built a company Intranet using Drupal 7. On March 11, 2010, I gave a presentation on Drupal Design to Theme at our Surrey Drupal Meetup. I have been involved in organizing the Surrey Drupal meetup since July 2008 when I co-founded the meetup group. See http://www.meetup.com/surrey-drupal
