The Friendly Machine blog is now retired. Thank you to all who read and supported my work over the past few years. I have a new side project I'm excited about called Mebit Media. It has lots of good stuff on health, fitness, travel, technology and other topics. Check it out!

Hi, I’m John Hannah, the guy behind Friendly Machine. I'm a front end developer at Lullabot who specializes in working with Drupal websites. I’ve been working as a developer since 2000. I got started by teaching myself HTML and making websites as a hobby. I eventually figured out I could earn a living at it and haven’t looked back since.

I built my first Drupal website in the spring of 2008 and have since worked primarily as a theme developer.

In my work as a consultant, I've been lucky to collaborate with a wide range of clients. They include large organizations like Delta Airlines and the University of Arizona as well as many wonderful small businesses and non-profits.

If you'd like to keep in touch, Twitter is where I like to spend my coffee breaks. You can also contact me via email: john [at] friendlymachine [dot] net
