Some people call me J-Trip (props Matt & Jen), Truckstop (props Andy), or John (props mom.)

Currently focusing on start-up life via Flox. Prior, I was the Director of Web Engineering for 10up and the Master of Alliteration at Automattic, Inc where I worked on Dotorg, Social, and VIP.

I have been the project lead for both BuddyPressbbPress since 2008, and I’ve authored or contributed to a few other pretty neat GPL licensed WordPress plugins that have been downloaded over 32 million times.

I started building open-source software in 1999, and everything’s been pretty great ever since.

Let’s be friends. ❤️
