Hey y'all, I'm Greg 👋🏻

I live in southeast Alabama with my beautiful wife Tara and our three kids-- Chase, Chloe, and Wyatt. I'm into photography, the Packers, Disney, WordPress, and JavaScript. From the time I built my first website in the late 90's, I’ve been passionate about the web! Learn more about my credentials on LinkedIn.

At Work

I'm the Director of Engineering at WebDevStudios where I oversee staffing, policy, wellness, continuing education, and provide technical guidance to our sales and marketing teams. I also help support the Project Management Office with resource allocation, and assist both the CEO and COO with planning and execution of engineering department goals.


I contract with Wiley Global and in 2016 I wrote a children’s book titled, Creating a Website for Dummies, Jr. I'm also the Technical Editor for WordPress for Dummies, Professional WordPress Plugin Development, and WordPress All-In-One For Dummies.


Since discovering open source in the early 2000's, I've contributed several parts of the WordPress ecosystem, including speaking at WordCamps. I've also contributed code to Next.js, Storybook, and Gatsby.

Thanks for reading! Stay safe! 🍻
