Jack started making the internet in 1998. At UChicago he is the technical lead and primary developer of the University's main website: www.uchicago.edu. Since joining Web Services in 2005 he has worked on two uchicago.edu redesigns—winning the 2013 Webby and Webby People's Voice Awards in the School/University category. In addition to partnering with communications colleagues across campus on a host of web projects he also provides technical and strategic leadership around the University's ExpressionEngine content management offering. His professional interests include web performance, dev/sysops, development standards, and reducing technical friction for users. Away from the office he spends too much money on vinyl.

Prior to UChicago, Jack was a web developer at Lesley University and also held fine arts administration positions at Carnegie Mellon University and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. He earned a BA in the History of Art and Architecture from the University of Pittsburgh.
