About me

I’ve been developing since I was 15 when I started a personal site. I wanted background music on my site so I learned HTML. Well it was all down hill from there! Over the years, I’ve worked with hundreds of websites and at one point I even had my own CMS built with PHP / MySQL. I switched to developing with WordPress in 2007 and have been enjoying pushing the boundaries ever since.

I specialize in WordPress and Pods Framework development using PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, jQuery, and React. I speak at WordCamps, Meetups, and Conferences to help others learn from my experiences. When I’m not developing I spend as much time as possible with my wife and my daughters. I also like to play and make music with my project Soft Charisma.

“I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life… to put to rout all that was not life; and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
Henry David Thoreau
