Bio

I am a Training team Faculty member, sponsored by Automattic. My focus is on creating content for https://learn.wordpress.org/ and helping other contributors do the same. You’ll find me in both the English and Japanese WordPress communities. I have experience in higher education, community management, and WordPress support.

WordPress Origin Story

I was asked to create a site for my church in 2015. I decided to give WordPress a try, and immediately fell in love with it! It has been my go-to CMS since.
