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 is the best half, 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, treehouses, websites & WordPress plugins. I also have a special passion (in no particular order) for: WordPress, spray-painting, Photoshop, sushi, Milwaukee tools, photography, Legos, and the color blue. I painted houses for a bunch of years before getting into code, which taught me a lot about a lot, but mostly gave me mad painter skills. :)
Thankfully I’m no longer painting, but am a software developer, and team lead.
I’ve been using WordPress since 2.9, have many publicly available plugins on wordpress.org, have contributed to
three a number of WordPress releases, help contribute to other codebases (most notably CMB2), & a product development manager at Awesome Motive. You can find all sorts of code examples and projects I’m involved with over on my projects page.
I keep most of my technical stuff over at https://dsgnwrks.pro, so please pay a visit if you’re interested in that sorta thing.
Oh! And I’ve started a podcast with my good friend Mark Pratt. You can find it here: https://howiseeit.click
I also have a page that lists many of my favorite (and recommended) things. You should check it out.
But enough about me.. What about you?
