During COVID-19 and the economic situation in the world I put my start-up on hold and joined Crowdcast as Head of Customer Success.

WebDevStudios (2009 – 2011)
My first job out of college and what started it all in my WordPress career. I was the first developer hire at WebDevStudios and within my first weeks of working there I was attending WordCamp, submitting plugins to the WordPress.org plugin repository and committing code to WordPress core. My three years at WebDevStudios consisted of developing plugins and themes for a wide variety of clients, custom builds, large migrations to WordPress and on-going support. I give a lot of credit to Brad Williams for kickstarting my WordPress career and showing me the importance of giving back to the community.
At Time Inc. I was the Sr. Front-end developer for EW.com. I also managed the EW.com blogs which were on WordPress VIP and the 10 most popular blogs on WordPress.com at the time.
