I live in sleepy south Alabama with my beautiful wife Tara and our three children. In my spare time, I enjoy taking photos, cheering for the Green Bay Packers, and playing bass guitar. Way back in 1997, I built my first web site on and have been passionate about the web since!
I work at WebDevStudios, a web development agency that builds cool shit on the internet. I've been there since 2013, and for the last several years I've been the Director of Engineering. Some of my responsibilities include supporting people and teams, hiring, writing policy, and creating training materials. I also partner with the executive team to plan and acomplish company goals.
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 web site planning and development process. My book 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 2006. 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.
