How can I help?

Hit me at [email protected] with a short note about what you'd like to do.

My roots are WordPress and publishing, and I love pretty much everything related to web development (architecture, performance, security, etc.). When not working with clients, I also contribute to WP-CLI (WordPress' command line interface) and other open source projects.


I've been fortunate to work with a number of impressive companies over the years.

  • Fusion
  • Pantheon
  • Airbnb
  • PBS Frontline
  • WordPress.com VIP
  • New Republic
  • Easy Digital Downloads
  • Chicago Sun-Times
  • Humanmade
