I am happily married to Kristi Cone and we have a cat named Monki. I have been a web developer since 1997 and am passionate about programming and strategy. I am an active member of the Greenville Makers and I frequently volunteer in the local community and at disaster sites around the United States. I’ve even created unique events like PumpUpTheSite to help benefit charities and non-profits who’s web sites need a facelift. In addition to volunteering I also try to contribute to several open source software projects. I’m a passionate advocate for the open source model. Some of my favorite open source projects are: Ubuntu, PHP, WordPress, Drupal and many others.
