Bio/Description

I have been and IT consultant and web developer for a very long time. I’ve built custom data management systems for property maintenance companies, e-commerce web solutions and mobile apps. I’ve always embraced the Open Source movement and marvel at the amount of work that is freely done by dedicated developers for the benefit of business and personal users alike. I love the way WordPress enables people to build their own sites easily and concentrate on the job of making money. I am helping out here from time to time to try to “give something back” as I have benefitted considerably from Open Source over the years.
