Bio/Description

I’m just someone who gives a damn. That’s all.

WordPress Origin Story

I came into WordPress by accident, and never looked back. The story of WordPress *IS* the story of its people, and everyone–everyone–is invited to participate and join. Coder or not, there’s a place for you at WordPress, because all the players ensure it. It’s the work of many hands and many voices, and it is this commitment to the many that means so much to me.
