Why do you use WordPress?
Same reason people breath air. ๐Ÿ™‚

What would you say to convince someone to attend a WordCamp?
I would tell them it’s a conference of community, not just software. Build websites, and friendships.

Do you want to learn how to democratize publishing? Do you want to learn how to make the most amazing websites with free software? DO IT!

What is your favorite WordPress project you have worked on recently?
Our Sucuri plugin is my favorite ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you have any advice for someone looking to start or grow a WordPress based business?
Partner with people that compliment your weaknesses.ย Don’t go at it alone. WordPress is more then software, it’s a community. Leverage that community!

What is your favorite WordPress-related resource?

Tell us something awesome about yourself that is not WordPress related
I practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Carlson Gracie Team. I started a blog to catalog my journey
