About

In 1997, I built my first website on Geocities and have been passionate about the web since! I enjoy taking photos, cheering for the Green Bay Packers, and making pizzas in my spare time.

Web Developer

I’m a Tech Lead at AmericanEagle.com, an industry leader in web design, development, hosting, and digital marketing. I partner with clients and team members to build websites with Next.js and WordPress.

Published Author

In 2017, I wrote a children’s book titled Creating a Website for Dummies Jr which was published by Wiley Global under the dummies™️ brand.

The book guides young readers through the planning and development processes of building a website. It has been translated into other 2 other languages, and currently has a 4.5-star rating on Amazon.

Since being published, I’ve also served as the Technical Editor on three other books:

  1. WordPress for Dummies
    (Sabin-Wilson, 2021)
  2. Professional WordPress Plugin Development
    (Williams et al., 2020)
  3. WordPress All-In-One For Dummies
    (Sabin-Wilson, 2019)

Photographer

In late 2019, I bought a mirrorless camera and spent months taking courses, reading, practicing, and having my work critiqued by peers. What started as an enjoyable hobby, has turned into a passionate way to express my creativity.

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.
