I write a lot of code and, when I can, I try to share it in hopes someone might find it useful. Here are some of my bigger projects to date. For a more complete list of projects I've been involved in please take a look at my GitHub and WordPress.org profiles.

Note that "archived" projects are projects I am no longer involved in for one reason or another.


Building a great product is only part of the equation. Teaching others to build their own products and website not only helps others succeed in their own goal but also is one of the most fulfilling activities I've ever done. Fortunately I've had the opportunity to speak and teach to diverse audiences on WordPress and technology on a few occasions. Here is a list of where I've been lately and where I'll be going. Hopefully if I haven't met you already, I'll get to at one of my upcoming engagements.
