My name is Charles Lavera; I am a Multimedia Specialist / Web Developer with the Office of Digital Learning (ODL) at the Eberly College of Science at Penn State. Originally from the Pittsburgh area, I uphold a broad background in digital-media and web-development with a focus on Drupal-installations, web component architecture, interactive content (H5P), and open-source technology. You could say that I wear many hats, but I consider my flexibility to be my greatest asset as I am able to provide support in a number of areas when needed. My favorite part of working with the ODL team has been the opportunity to collaborate with faculty and staff to create engaging web-experiences that showcase innovation and modern web-advancements. From complete websites to custom course-applications, we have fun exploring the deepest recesses of our creativity while we build a better future.
Outside of the office, I am known for being a loving husband, dedicated musician, an avid hockey fan, and a nature enthusiast.
