Bio/Description

Guru. All things WordPress

I work for a web host. I also take freelancing gigs writing plugins, creating custom scripts, doing theme work, and unfortunately, cleaning up exploited WordPress blogs.

I’ve helped out on the WordPress support forums for almost 5 years now, and have seen a lot of people come and go. I continue to do it because it feels good to watch the lights go on in someone’s head after you’ve tried to teach them something. Occasionally that happens around here. Most days, it doesn’t.

Interests

yes.
