Bio/Description

I am an Augusta-based, front-end developer for Morris Communications. I am the founder/organizer for RefreshAugusta, a co-founder/former partner of TheClubhou.se, co-organized WordCamp Atlanta 2009, organized Web Afternoon Augusta 2013, and livetweet for several conferences in the Southeast (Web Afternoon, ConvergeSE, ConvergeFL). I’ve also been an Adobe Influencer for several years. I made my first website in 1996 and never looked back. When I’m not on the computer, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two kids, playing Ingress, or helping out non-profit endeavors like the Jingle Jam 10K.

Interests

HTML5, CSS3, RWD, BuddyPress, Themes

WordPress Origin Story

I built my own rudimentary CMS using ColdFusion back in the day. When it no longer satisfied my needs, I started looking at other options. Blogger allowed you to publish to your own server and I hacked together something that would publish posts with CFM markup/includes… but it still wasn’t enough. Then my buddy Will Sansbury told me about WordPress.

It was rough, but it did everything I wanted my site to do and more. I was hooked and quickly migrated over to using it for everything I could.

8+ years later I’m still loving WordPress.

    You were absolutely right. Even encoding it with &+#37; seems to break it.
