WordCamp Chicago Mini-Interview

  1. When did you first become interested in WordPress?

2010 (I think) but I was doing basic web development before that as well.

  1. What motivated you to speak at WordCamp?

I love teaching and helping others. Before going full-time with my agency, I was a teacher for over 7 years. Speaking at events is a way for me to continue teaching and giving back.

  1. Why do you think WordPress is different from other web platforms?

I prefer WordPress because it’s a low barrier to entry but it can be infinitely expanded if you know what you’re doing. Beyond that, it’s surrounded by a great community and always seems to be growing.
