Hi there, welcome to my (very) small corner of the web, focussing on my contributions to the [Statamic](https://statamic.com/) & [Laravel](https://laravel.com) ecosystems.
_**TL;DR**_ - started my career as a developer, went into software sales, came back to development, fell in (developer) love with Statamic & Laravel and have worked with companies like OpenTable, Duo Security & MailerList.
* started with development back before the internet!
* helped build Mac Office & Adobe PageMaker
* sold software into the Fortune 1000
* started doing Statamic & Laravel work for companies like [OpenTable](https://opentable.com)
* got involved in the Statamic & Laravel communities
I’ve come to really love the community around Statamic and I have really enjoyed [contributing](/addons) to it. I am a regular on their [Discord](https://slack.statamic.com) group & [forums](https://statamic.com/forum), spending several hours a day helping people.
As part of the community I've built several of the most downloaded addons, built a course on building addons, and helped 100s of people get their sites going. I've helped many great companies, such as OpenTable, MailerLite & Duo Security, with:
* data architecture
* site builds
* localization frameworks
* 3rd party integration
And when I learned that Statamic v3 was going to be a Laravel packaged I dove right in and have worked on sites like [FitnessMD](https://fitnessmd.fit).
