I’m now a full-time WordPress consultant. Contact me if you need a custom theme, plugin, or other WordPress-related work.

Prior to striking out on my own, I worked for the Texas A&M University Writing Center, the Texas A&M System Offices, and  the Texas A&M Health Science Center. I still do consulting work for Texas A&M and other institutions of higher education.

I’m pretty active in the web design community, mostly in CSS, standards, accessibility, WordPress, and higher ed. I was on the programming committee for the HighEdWeb conference from 2006 until 2009.

WordPress Book & Other Work

I’ve written a book, Beginning WordPress 3, published in June 2010 by Apress. The second edition, titled WordPress for Web Developers, came out in 2013.

I’ve also published over a dozen plugins. Most of my themes have been proprietary client or day-job projects, but I have published a couple of demos from the book.

I publish WordPress tips on a regular basis.

I present at conferences (especially WordCamps) regularly. See all my presentations and interviews.

Other Writing

Oh, yeah, and I write fiction in my copious spare time. In April 2011, I co-hosted Paradise Lost, a Viable Paradise alumni writing workshop, which is now an annual event.
