About

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.

Books

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:

Contributions

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.
