Why do you use WordPress?
Because it’s generally the best tool for the job!

What would you say to convince someone to attend a WordCamp?
It’s cheap, the talks are great, and the networking is invaluable.

What is your favorite WordPress project you have worked on recently?
I’m currently working on a mobile app for The University of Scranton using AppPresser. Pretty cool!

Do you have any advice for someone looking to start or grow a WordPress based business?
Find your niche and talk to people! The great thing about the WP community is that even though we are all technically competing, we are ready and willing to help each other out!

What is your favorite WordPress-related resource?
Can I say my book? 🙂

I find myself going to the Codex more than any other resource.

Tell us something awesome about yourself that is not WordPress related
I play the drums! Not in a band or anything…but in my apartment!
