Bio

Hi, I’m Zack. I work on CC Search sponsored by Automattic. Ask me about WordPress across the stack—from small styling bugs to PHP execution errors.

WordPress Origin Story

I started freelance web development while in college, around 2010, and WordPress was the natural choice to make small content sites for local businesses and friends.

Afterword, for financial reasons I dropped out of school and jumped into an agency role, where I wrote custom WordPress themes full-time!

Through WordPress I learned to write HTML, CSS, PHP and JavaScript, but also lots of other useful tooling in the ecosystem like css preprocessors, javascript build tools, vagrant, docker, etc.
