During business hours, I am the Chief Operating Officer and partner at WebDevStudios, a full service website development and design agency.
I am also the author of WordPress For Dummies, and several other books in the For Dummies™ series around web design, development and WordPress. I've enjoyed a fulfilling career in the WordPress industry for the past 18-years.
Outside of business hours, I am a casual baker, gardener, Alice in Wonderland fan, and a not-so-casual Green Bay Packers football fan.
Since 2006, I have been writing books on the WordPress platform for the For Dummies™ series from Wiley Publishing. My books are distributed world-wide in multiple languages - that is mostly due to the overwhelming popularity of the WordPress platform, which currently powers 30/% of all websites you view on the web today!
The Latest Editions
Design is really my passion, over anything else that fills the hours in my day. I'm a self-taught designer & frontend developer who turned dabbling into a 15-year long career! Below are some of my favorite works our team at WebDevStudios has done in the past several years.
Words I Live By.
"You're mad. Bonkers. Off your head.
But I'll tell you a secret ... all of the best people are."
