Speaking & Writing

My first career plan was to be a university professor.  However, there is no job market for medieval history professors, and it turns out I’m much happier as a WordPress developer.  I still have a passion for teaching, and over the years, in addition to mentoring a lot of budding developers, I have also given a lot of talks and written a lot of tutorials.  Here are my favorites:
