Way back in 1997, I built my first website on and have been passionate about the web since! In my spare time I enjoy taking photos, cheering for the Green Bay Packers, and making pizzas.
I'm a WordPress Technical Lead at AmericanEagle.com, an industry leader in web design, development, hosting, and digital marketing with a passionate belief in the power of technology to positively transform business practices. There I lead a team of engineers as we partner with clients to rebuild their frontends with WordPress and Next.js.
To learn more about my professional history, view my resume on LinkedIn.
I contract with For Dummies and WROX brands to write and edit technical books. I wrote a children's book in 2017 titled Creating a Website for Dummies Jr. It guides the reader through the website planning and development process. My book has been translated into other languages, and currently has a 4/5 rating on Amazon.
I also served as the Technical Editor for three other books:
- WordPress for Dummies (Sabin-Wilson, 2021)
- Professional WordPress Plugin Development (Williams et al., 2020)
- WordPress All-In-One For Dummies (Sabin-Wilson, 2019)
I've been part of the WordPress community since 2008. I've made contributions to core, documentation, plugins, and themes. I've also spoken at WordCamps and meet-ups. I'm also a contributor to other open-source projects like Next.js, Storybook, and Gatsby.
Outside of tech, I volunteer my time and efforts at local community organizations. The Boy Scouts, Wiregrass Church, and the Enterprise High School Band Boosters to name a few.
