Director of Engineering for Red Tricycle. I dig large scale WP sites, front end web technology and early stage startups. Formerly at Cheezburger.

WordPress Origin Story

I started using WordPress in college for documentation purposes. When I started at Cheezburger in 2009, I migrated 30+ self hosted installs to WordPress.com VIP, and have been developing on the VIP platform ever since. Two plugins I co-authored at Cheezburger are now part of the VIP shared plugin repository.
