Bio/Description

I provide practical no-nonsense advice on project management and business development to businesses in Springfield Missouri, Southwest Missouri, and beyond. I’m also Director of Communications at the Diocese of West Missouri.

I occasionally customize WordPress Themes for my customers and myself.

Interests

hiking, backpacking, camping, kayaking, photography

WordPress Origin Story

I started blogging on WordPress.com as a way of sharing my photography and activities with my dispersed family and friends. The lack of customization available in WordPress.com (this was back in 2008) and the introduction of adverts in posts made me look for an alternate hosting platform. I taught myself how to produce child themes, and now self-host several WordPress-based websites.

My personal blog can be found at www.breakfastinamerica.me
