About

Director of Engineering @WebDevStudios / Author & Editor @Wiley

Hello! I’m the Director of Engineering at WebDevStudios, where we partner with enterprise level corporations like Microsoft, Dell, Viacom, News Corporation, Campbell’s Soup Company, and the NBA to help them publish with WordPress.

Over the years, I’ve also contributed to various areas of the WordPress ecosystem, such as core, plugins, themes, Gutenberg, and BuddyPress, as well as speaking at WordCamp Milwaukee and Birmingham. I also contribute to other open-source projects including GatsbyJS, and Next.js, as well as dozens of my own projects on Github.

On the side, I contract with Wiley and have authored a children’s book titled, Creating a Website for Dummies, Jr. and serve as Technical Editor on three other books, WordPress for Dummies 9E (January 2021), WordPress All-In-One For Dummies, 4E and Professional WordPress Plugin Development, 2E.

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.
