This week, I am joining The Theme Foundry team as a Developer and I am absolutely thrilled! I have been a big fan of The Theme Foundry for a long time. Their themes are beautiful both in regard to design and code quality. I look forward to helping the team continue in this tradition.
Since I will be working with The Theme Foundry customers, I should tell you about myself. I have been involved in web development for the past 9 years and have focused on WordPress development for the past 6 years. Prior to joining The Theme Foundry, I worked as a Senior Web Engineer for 10up, LLC, where I focused on developing high traffic websites and interfaced with clients. Prior to that, I was a freelance web developer in my spare time while I was pursuing a PhD in Clinical Psychology (which I completed in August 2011). While I have spent most of my web development career building individual websites, I am excited to step out of the world of client services and into the realm of product development.
Like the rest of the United States based The Theme Foundry team, I reside in the Northwest. More specifically, I currently live in the not-so-sunny Portland, Oregon with my fiancée and dog. I am originally from small town Alaska and have been waiting for a snowy day in Portland. It should also be noted, that I did live in Moscow, Idaho for two years during grad school, and I am somewhat convinced that Drew looks for current or prior Idaho residence in order to be considered for a position at The Theme Foundry (unless you have the pixel pushing precision of Scott, then that requirement is waived). I am excited to be living in a city that has a vibrant tech scene and an especially stellar WordPress community. This helps me to stay motivated with all of the WordPress development that I do.
So that’s a little bit about me! I look forward to learning a little bit about all of our customers around the Help Center!
