Thanks so much, Tom. I’m so happy to be here!

Like so many of us here, I started my programming career as a freelancer. I came to Boston to pursue 3D animation, but became involved in the local WordPress community and taught myself JavaScript & PHP through freelance work building sites for local indie game studios. Those skills got me a job on a travel agency’s content team, which developed into a lead web UI engineering role over the next four years.

The WordPress community gave me my first opportunities to organize and speak at meetups and WordCamps, and I began contributing back to WordPress core itself after joining Bocoup in 2013. I met Ryan, Joe and the REST API team while integrating WordPress into our Node applications and data visualization projects, and met more of the Human Made crew when I was invited to speak at A Day of REST London in 2016.

A decade into my WordPress journey I’m delighted to find myself here at Human Made. It’s been an honor and a privilege collaborating with this team on open source, and I’m really excited about the scope of the projects we tackle here. It feels like a perfect fit.
