Bio/Description

Originally from NY but grew up in NM. I am addicted to NM chile, but that has not been enough to keep me in the Land of Enchantment. I have spent time living in Israel and Costa Rica, but am now back in NY.

I love WordPress and use it almost exclusively on new web development projects. I enjoy sharing my knowledge as well as learning more about WordPress.

Interests

WordPress, CSS, Bicycling, Gardening, Computer Gaming, The Scriptures, Sci-Fi, Pour-over Coffee, Health, Family.
