I design and develop WordPress themes and plugins.
On projects where they have a particular expertise, I do work with a few other trusted graphic artists and developers, but I design and develop the vast majority of our sites solo, starting with the Genesis sample theme.
I’ve been building websites and working with businesses and nonprofits on marketing for about six years.
For my own needs over the years, I’ve build dozens of plugins, and several of those are publicly available, including Elodin Sections (a quasi-page builder), Genesis Mobile Header, which allows for flexible mobile header areas, and my personal favorite, Simple Query Shortcodes, which lets theme builders easily pull in posts of different types and create custom layouts for those in minutes.
I live with my wonderful wife Amanda, our son Jack (born in late 2019), our loving dogs Guinness and Pippa, and two cats who might briefly notice but wouldn’t greatly care if I were suddenly absent. And one cat who doesn’t love me, even though I totally deserve his love. We have too many animals.
We live in Waco, Texas, the greatest place on planet Earth and the home of Baylor University, from which I earned a Bachelor’s degree in journalism in 2007. I practiced the dark arts of reporting in Central Texas for a couple of years after college, then became a technical writer in Houston (working primarily out of the corporate headquarters of Baker Hughes, Schell, BP, and a number of others).
I was an account executive at Harris Media next, working to various degrees with about 15 political campaigns (mostly US Senate and gubernatorial primaries) in the 2010 cycle, then landed briefly at The Five Star, where I marketed REO and short sale realtor educational and promotional resources for a time, before launching into web development full time.
I’ve built several hundred sites since then, working with clients across the globe.
