Bio/Description

I am a WordPress user and theme tweaker. I have been working on my personal site since 1997 and using WordPress since 2.1. I also like to assist other WordPress users hanging around the Support Forums and Trac (as thee17). I have even been known to submit patches to core. Right now my interests are in making WordPress a functional Gallery platform using the latest cutting-edge features WordPress has to offer (taxonomies, post types, post formats, post statuses, and widgets).
