I’m a thrill-seeking New Yorker who loves learning new things and helping people operate at their highest possibility. I play chess and read like a man possessed in between.
Chess: I’ve been playing since the sandbox. I love this game!
Travel: It’s on my bucket list to visit every continent in my life time. I’m a culture junkie.
Reading: I’m always reading something. Almost always non-fiction.
Basketball: I’m a Knicks fan.
Boxing: I’ve been boxing since grade school. Avid fan of the sport.
WordPress Origin Story
I’ve been using WordPress since 2008 for various projects. It’s fair to say I was no different then the average WordPress user; chose a theme, create some posts and pages, mess around with some plugins, etc. As I used WordPress more and more, I found myself wanting to do more with it but lacked the understanding and coding chops to use WordPress to it’s full potential.
It wasn’t until about two years ago that a buddy of mine planted the seed in my mind and pushed me to give coding a real shot. While I had some knowledge and understanding of web languages because my dad has been a programmer for some 37 years, I pretty much took it for granted and never took it too serious.
All this changed though on June 1st, 2013, when I start taking serious all things code. I became a student of the code and began following the ways of the coder. I’ve been tweaking and coding with WordPress ever since.
