Biography

I help individuals, businesses, and universities develop beautiful web presences that are easy to manage. I’m a WordPress Developer, an entrepreneur, a husband, a father, a skier, an avid reader, a gardener, and a winemaker living in Georgetown, TX (north of Austin). I’ve been developing with WordPress since 2006, and share what I learn through tutorials and plugins.
