What got you into working with WordPress?
I taught myself PHP by writing plugins for phpBB. WordPress was a natural progression with a similar plugin and templating system, and ultimately matured into a better system.
What do you like best about WordPress?
The product is great, but primarily the community. I like that the community fosters members of all backgrounds and professional focuses (content, marketing, development, design, etc.).
What WordPress project has been your favorite?
Probably the copy of Miles Davis I learned on. It was fun to explore the WordPress source for the first time, Frankenstein in the phpBB installation, design every UI detail (unheard of in non-open-source projects before), and build something 100% tailored to my audience.
What’s your WordPress design preference?
○ Starter Theme ○ Free Theme ○ Premium Theme ○ Framework ○ Other
What would we not guess about you outside of WordCamp?
I’m a chili pepper enthusiast. I grow a variety of peppers and my friends buy hot sauce and BBQ sauce from me, made from my garden.
What do you like about WordCamps?
I have a handful of community and internet friends I only see at WordCamps. I also enjoy seeing the many cool ways the world is bending WordPress and other open source technologies.
