About Greg

Director of Engineering @WebDevStudios / Author & Editor @Wiley

The Rickaby Family in the fall of 2019

Hello! I’m the Director of Engineering at WebDevStudios, where we build amazing digital platforms for enterprise level corporations with WordPress. While at WebDevStudios, my engineers and I have solve complex website problems for clients like Microsoft, Viacom, News Corporation, Campbell’s Soup Company, and the NBA.

Over the years, I’ve also contributed to WordPress Core, various WordPress themes, dozens of open source projects, including GatsbyJS, and have spoken at a few WordCamps.

I've also contracted with Wiley and authored a children’s book about building your first website (Amazon), and served as Technical Editor on two other books, WordPress All-In-One For Dummies, 4E (Amazon) and Professional WordPress Plugin Development, 2E which will be published in the spring of 2020.

I’m always trying to learn something new, everything from leadership skills, or mastering new technology, to playing music. Right now, I’m “all in” photography.

When I’m not at work? I enjoy being a dad and hanging out with family, as well as serving my community through Wiregrass Church. I’ve also been known to moonlight as a pizzaiolo.
