Bio

I have so many different experiences in my life that have shown me that disabilities do not always stop you. I have been a judge, graphic designer, entrepreneur, computer repair specialist, video production engineer, and even a promoter of potential music talent. My life has led me to places that many can not even fathom, let alone done it themselves! I have multiple physical disabilities due to cancer at age 14, with massive amounts of Chemo and many other chemicals and drugs. I am also on the Autism Spectrum (ASD), with Major Depressive and Bi-Polar thrown into the mix.

I truly believe that there is ALWAYS a silver lining to any situation and event! With this in mind, I am trying to start a company with the sole purpose of helping minorities. This includes those with disabilities, members of the LBGTQ+ Community, and anyone of color. I also want to help to bring better equality to all. Women should not get paid less, or not given the same opportunities.

WordPress Origin Story

My entire history of coding websites was by hand using Windows NotePad since 1997. Then one day I thought that there had to be a better way! I started playing around with programs like CodeLobster to only find that I was still doing more work than I thought I should. I found expensive programs like NetObjects Fusion, Mobirise, and more. I had little control of the actual output and the code seemed really messy! Plus, the procedures that were needed to constantly upload the changes were getting out of control! Then I found WordPress while playing around on my server’s Softalocus. My prayers were finally answered! I am still learning my way around, but I think after a few months I have started to really get the hang of it. I have stumbled a few times, had to even reinstall a few times. The ease of use and the thousands of plugins and themes available are fantastic! I can not make an entire, fully functioning site in a matter of about 2 days instead of weeks with cand coding. I really love WordPress and I understand why there is no wonder that their share of what runs the internet keeps growing.
