Bio

I originally created this WP.org account in 2006 with the pseudonym Starbuck, which I use around the internet, along with CaptainStarbuck. Now that I’m doing a lot more work with WordPress in a serious business capacity, I figured it’s time to put my real name onto my posts.

I’m not actually a “web developer”. I’m a small business owner and developer of communications and business software, and I just happen to use WP in my toolkit.

Interests

C# and all .NET, Java, WordPress, communications, programming languages, natural languages, mobile apps, IoT, bots, AI. Anything creative and fun. I love to create new businesses. I’m a QA maniac and big on documentation. I love to see things work and help businesses to modernize and get more profitable with the help of technology.

WordPress Origin Story

Originally to me WP was just a blog of course. As I started looking to integrate forum software, wiki, and other applications I came to find in the last few years that it’s now a full CMS. I tried Drupal, ModX, and a couple others but never felt quite comfortable. With WP I feel at home. So now every time I get an idea for a website I slap up a new subdomain for testing and load up a new instance of WP. I’ve become a member of WPMU DEV and participate in a number of WP communities. I’ve also started to contribute code fixes and enhancements to common plugins, I have plugins of my own just for my sites, and I provide whatever support I can to fellow plugin users. I try to give back and pay-forward whenever possible for all of this great freeware. It’s an evolution. It feels good.
