We’ve now lived in Madrid for three months, and it feels like forever and no time at all. About a week and a half ago, we received all the furniture we shipped over from Seattle. The relief associated with settling into our new home has been astronomical. This past weekend, I set up my home […]

St. Louis

I’m in St. Louis in preparation for WordCamp US 2019! This is my first time here, so I took a few hours to walk around and explore. Of course, I had to visit so very iconic The Gateway Arch.


WordCamp Atlanta was fantastic! And it was all possible thanks to this wonderful group of volunteer organizers.

Today was Contributor Day, and I spent my time with the Community Team, hearing about lots of amazing ideas that must be […]


I am having a wonderful time at WordCamp Phoenix, and now, at the end of Day 2, I am reflecting on my journey here. Since I joined Automattic as a sponsored volunteer for the WordPress Open Source Project, many folx have asked me what I love most about my job. It is the Best Thing […]


I’m in Phoenix this weekend for WordCamp Phoenix, and Day 1 has been phenomenal! If you are here too, I’d love to meet you! In the meantime, I’m working on finding my way around Phoenix.
