Communities come in all sizes, shapes and structures. Here are some of the ways in which I’ve tried to “pay it forward” to others in the various communities in which I am found.
Dec-2022: WP Engine Ignite for High Ed web presentation.
Dec-2022: Nominated as Pantheon Community Member of the Month.
Aug-2022: I provided a demo of the WordPress products (theme + plugins) that we are delivering for ASU Engineering in order to build “on brand” websites using an “officially unsupported” CMS. Pitchfork for the win!

July 2021: Inspired by a pretty deep discussion of the state of calendars within WordPress that happened with WP Campus Slack, I volunteered to formally continue the conversation during the 2021 online conference. Key takeaways: building a calendar integration that works with WordPress is HARD.
July-2020: I spoke at WP Campus about faculty websites and how they can actually be leveraged to provide value back to a university/college, if they are done correctly.
Feb-2019: I spoke at the 2019 WordCamp Phoenix event about the new (at the time) block editor for WordPress. Styles for native blocks weren’t really well known, so I wanted to take a really deep dive into what pitfalls and CSS tricks could be used to leverage the new editor.
