Biography

I have more than sixteen years of web development experience, have been a regular contributor to WordPress for the last nine years, and even co-lead the WordPress 3.6 release. I have experience writing quality code that is both fast and scalable, and have a knack for translating ideas and goals into functional sites. I’ve worked with clients ranging from small local businesses to Google, Yahoo, Disney, and Harvard. I’ve been called both a coffee snob and a beer snob, but I consider both to be strong complements. When not buried in code, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son, attending or hosting beer tastings, and reading sci-fi/fantasy books.
