Bio/Description

I am a WordPress developer, a student at UTA, a husband and father-to-be. I have been using WordPress since 2.8 (give or take a point release.)

WordPress Origin Story

After 1.5 years of managing the business side of a integrated marketing agency, we were knee deep in building websites for small business’s along with the other standard Business Identity Packaged items. Our sites were .net, our lead developer left. I had to help fill his shoes, and I realized; “code is english.” A few months later we scrapped all the major projects the Sr. Developer had been doing and moved them into WordPress, I built my first few sites with plugins only no coding, the next few had some modifications that weren’t update safe, then about 6 months later I was knee deep learning PHP and building my own custom WordPress themes. These days all the work I do is on WordPress and I custom develop anything that scratches my own itch.
