This morning I'm giving a presentation at CMSPhilly (virtually) on building a simple plugin.

I've got the code, I've got slides, I've got screenshots. Since it's a paid ticket event, next thing to do is to write it out as a blog post to be able to freely share with yall here

Currently booking projects for June (if we get along, and you're in a rush, I can potentially do May!). Whether it's a full website build or adding some new functionality, I've got you. DM me. :)

I've been adjacent for close to twenty years now, but it's only thanks to friends on Snouts that I have a fursona of my own, named Bowie. I love all of my furry and scaly friends!

I'm working on updates to my current site theme, which I've called Velox, in honor of Vulpes velox, the Swift Fox.
