The (Still Brief) Full Story

For the better part of the last 10 years, I’ve been a WordPress designer and developer, focusing on small- to medium-sized businesses that wanted to sell their products online. I worked for a small marketing agency and also on my own.

As a freelance web developer, I spent the majority of my weeks’ time working from the comfort of my own home. 🏠

Starting in early 2020, at the very beginning of a global pandemic, I joined an amazing team of distributed, WooCommerce-focused customer support specialists at SkyVerge. This position gave me the opportunity to start to share the knowledge I had gained as a developer back to other developers and agencies.

In October of 2020, SkyVerge was acquired by GoDaddy. Though our ownership changed, our mission remained the same: to level the playing field for eCommerce businesses everywhere.

Almost a year later in September of 2021, I joined the GoDaddy Pro team to bring my WooCommerce expertise to a group of people devoted to helping web professionals—agencies and freelancers—build the best sites and online stores they can for their clients! Now I get to actively share about The Hub by GoDaddy Pro and our Managed WooCommerce products through the community and hosting virtual events.

In addition to my work with GoDaddy Pro, I also co-host one podcast episode per month for Do the Woo and co-host my own podcast with TJ Rogers called The HeadingTwo WP Podcast. Recently, I’ve also been named a team co-rep for the WordPress Photo Directory.

When work is over and it’s time to play, I enjoy photo walks, travel, and indulging in time with my beautiful wife and our wonderful daughters. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧
