Bio/Description

I’m sort of married to my PC. But we spend a healthy amount of time with other devices so its ok.

I’ve worked mostly in hospitality and customer service so serving others has been something iv had a lot of practice at. I also spend a lot of time experimenting with plugins and code snippets, and am aiming to increase my programming skills.

Interests

Playing games.
3D animation.
Short films.
Film production.
Building websites.
Ancient History.

WordPress Origin Story

Before WordPress I was using mainly Dreamweaver and other tools. WordPress has actually encouraged and eased me into coding and has made me better at it. Before I relied on a tool or a visual editor to code most of my hobby websites. Themes and Plugins opened my eyes and made me realise that I could accomplish more if I used the products others made available, but on the flip side, the sense of empowerment i got from building amazing websites encouraged me to dive in and find out how the products that help me, actually work.

After using WordPress for about 6 months I stumbled across someone in the WordPress.org forums trying to start a business and needed help with his website, since then iv been managing websites professionally as a freelancer.
