About Me

I’m a native Minnesotan who now resides in beautiful Southport, North Carolina. I’m a cross between a family man & a world-traveler (I’m hoping to get to the world-traveler part someday). I love my wife, Meagan Sternberg who fills the holes that I leave empty, my daughter Mia who has such an amazing personality that cannot be described in the space allotted here, my precious middle child, (Virginia) Jewel, & my baby –who’s no longer a baby– boy, Joseph Marshall!

I’m an Apple & Google fan boy who loves building things including but not limited to: furniture, websites & WordPress plugins. I also have a special passion (in no particular order) for: WordPress, spray-painting, Photoshop, sushi, Milwaukee tools, photography, Legos, the color blue, & church. I painted since I was 16 (houses, not canvas) which taught me a lot about a lot, but mostly gave me mad painter skillz. :)

Thankfully I’m no longer painting, but working with WordPress.

Did I mention my passion for WordPress? I’ve been using it for about five years, have nine many publicly available plugins on wordpress.org, have contributed to three a number WordPress releases including the most recent, 4.1, help contribute to other codebases (most notably CMB2), & am currently freelancing under the name, DsgnWrks. You can find all sorts of code examples and projects I’m involved with over at my projects page.

I keep most of my technical stuff over at http://dsgnwrks.pro, so please pay a visit if you’re interested in that sorta thing.

But enough about me.. What about you?

  1. Hey Justin,

    I work for UpTrending, a web agency based out of Silicon Valley. We’re currently looking to hire a full-time WordPress/PHP Developer and I am impressed with your background, skills set and portfolio. I think you would be a great asset to our team and I wanted to reach out to see if you are interested in talking further?

    Our company is virtual, so the work is 100% telecommute and has flexible hours. We’re selective with our client base and tend to work mostly with fun/innovative Silicon Valley startups, high tech companies and anyone looking to integrate cutting edge design/development techniques into their online presence.

    We are competitive in salary and offer a benefits package as well. If you are interested, or know someone that may be a good fit, please feel free to contact me.

    I hope to hear from you soon,

    Gina McCarter
