Bio

Hi! My name is DJ. I’m a web developer and blog helper person specializing in WordPress.

I love using WordPress and helping people with their WordPress websites. I’m always learning new things. Right now I’m probably taking a PHP course or messing with a WordPress theme to see how it works under the hood.

I’m also an illustrator, I run a screen print studio and I love futzing with old computers and making them useful again.

WordPress Origin Story

I found WordPress in 2009. I created my first website around my freelance illustration business. The more I worked on the site, the more I learned and the more I fell in love with the platform. The next site I built after that was naturally WordPress, and soon I was a geeked-out WP evangelist. Over ten years later, I’m building and maintaining WP sites for small businesses and bloggers.
