Margaux O'Malley
Grand Junction Design
Margaux is the chief strategist at GJD, the one who helps organizations take their big picture and transform it into an effective and actionable website. She is good with Drupal on a technical level, too, but the part of her job that she really loves is working directly with other people to form a plan. Her background is in Latin American Studies and Spanish. She studied at Carleton College (including their affiliated programs in Morelia, México and San José, Costa Rica), and did independent research in Buenos Aires, Argentina, focused on the Madres de Plaza de Mayo. Professionally, she’s been involved with the community of Drupal developers in Argentina (Buenos Aires, Córdoba and Rosario). She is interested in the general spread of open source technology as a tool for social change in Latin America. In particular she's keen on Drupal, since it handles multilingual websites well. When she’s not working, you’re likely to find her knitting, biking, practicing yoga, playing fiddle, or some combination thereof.
