Biography

Morgan’s experience ranges from consulting with businesses on their web presence to building websites for multinational companies, and pretty much everything in between.

He has been coding since the mid-80s, and built his first website from scratch in 1998, eventually deciding to focus on WordPress as his CMS of choice in 2009. Since then, he has contributed to over a dozen releases of the core software, and several themes and plugins for the public and various clients.

After 12+ years in the Navy, he graduated with Liberal Studies degree from Oklahoma Christian University, studying Information Systems, Business, Bible, and History.

When not geeking out on code, he likes to visit the zoo with his wife and daughter, take photos he never does anything with, and choke back tears when a companion leaves Doctor Who.
