During a multi year high-school programming class, I developed a love for engineering code and creating applications with powerful, but simple user interfaces. It wasn’t long until this interest led to my first static HTML site followed by a few years of building websites for family and friends.
When I decided to quit my manufacturing job to pursue a career in web development it was only too easy to decide on a development platform. Compared to working with other Content Management Systems, the ease and flexibility that WordPress brought was like a breath of fresh air. After spending a few months of late nights interning with an exciting local WordPress shop and with help from the Seattle WordPress community, I plunged into a career of freelancing until being hired on at 10up.
I worked at 10up for a little over a year and was able to collaborate with and learn from some of the best minds in the industry. Ultimately, though, I didn’t feel like agency work was the best fit for me and I reprised my freelancing business. (You can read more about that decision here.)
I now get to spend my days working with amazing clients doing some pretty awesome things. I love what I do and that I get to do it from the comforts of my home with my wonderful family.
