Bio/Description

I have been web development since around 2006. I got to the point I needed to further my education and took a 14 month, part-time web course out of Camosun College in Victoria. I started my web business the year after graduating and have been self-learning ever since. I have used other CMS’ in the past, but nothing compares to WordPress! It’s a brilliant system with so many resources and a great, passionate community. I love the open source concept as I can take advantage from people who are way smarter than me. Win win.

Happy coding

Interests

Film production, editing, photography, environmental awareness, responsible parenting, passion, honesty, laughter, love

WordPress Origin Story

I came across WordPress after using Elgg and Drupal and instantly fell in love the with interface and the application. I love how you can edit files without having to always work locally and FTP. Once I went WP, I’ve never looked back.
