Biography

I lead Rocket Lift, where we serve impactful organizations with technical strategy, custom WordPress development, and digital marketing. I’ve worked with WordPress almost exclusively for over ten years, and am a WordCamp organizer and speaker. I enjoy integrating WordPress with other systems (for one example, sending custom notifications to Slack), and customizing WordPress sites to look and work exactly how you need.

My clients like how I’m a great communicator, how I work to understand their business goals before I make any technical suggestions, and how I fit in well with their team.
