I live with my fantastic partner Jono and my mad cat, Patch, who thinks he’s a dog. We live in the quaint, quirky and wonderful ye the olde City of York; along with the Vikings, tourists and loads of friendly faces. I love photography, cooking and crochet! I’m always happy to speak with anyone that I meet, but will also need time to recharge as a massive ambivert.

WordPress Origin Story
I’ve had a blog in some form or another for over 10 years but it’s only really in the past 5 that I’ve been involved with the project. Being married to Jono Alderson how can you not. I tagged along with him to a few events and got to know the community. Fell in love with some of the people and found that we all had similar thought processes. Over the past 2 years while working at Yoast I have got so much closer to the community and the project. I hope to only grow that more helping the marketing team with their efforts to show the power of WordPress and the community behind it.
