Bio

I’m a semi-retired software engineer with over 34+ years in tech.

I’m an expert WooCommerce & WordPress developer. I am a former core contributor to WordPress & WooCommerce. I thoroughly enjoy helping people learn both frameworks, as well as teaching others to code and help them achieve their ultimate goals online.

I speak several languages fluently: French, Spanish, German and Japanese. I can also speak a little Polish, but not that great. I’m an avid surfer and have been surfing for over 50 years.

Need help, reach out to me on the WooCommerce Slack @SenseiSenkōKamoku

Interests

Surfing, Jeopardy, Traveling, Crossword Puzzles and Cooking.

WordPress Origin Story

I’ve been working in WordPress since day one. That’s it.
