Kicking off 2015 with even more public speaking…last night I gave a short talk at the Style & Class meet-up about Pattern Lab and the benefit of building interactive HTML prototypes. The theme for the evening was “design storytelling” and the angle of my presentation was …
Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at WordCamp Vancouver 2014. The talk that I gave—which was a 30,000 ft. view of using WordPress as an application platform—was basically the culmination of a half-hearted promise I made to myself after leaving the same WordCamp last …

That camera definitely doesn’t show up to mess around.
I’d love to chat, so drop me a line or find me at a WordPress meet-up in Vancouver.
