Bio

I am a web developer at the University of British Columbia. I have a passion for everything WordPress, and build themes and plugins in my spare time. I live in Kelowna with my wife and three daughters.

Interests

I like music (7 string guitar), art (painting), family, learning new stuff.

WordPress Origin Story

My first experience with WordPress was sometime back around 2005, version 2.0 maybe? I was running a web development business and was exploring different platforms to develop on. I was developing themes for the cringeworthy Dot Net Nuke (DNN) at the time and hated it. I then went on to work for a large US corporation that used Joomla and didn’t like that much either. I decided in my spare time to start playing around with WordPress and fell in love with it right away and have been developing on it ever since. (Thanks Matt!)
