Some people call me J-Trip (props Matt & Jen), but everyone just calls me John.

Most of the web knows me as a 10-year veteran WordPress core contributor. In recent history, I was the Director of Web Engineering at 10up for a brief 9 month period, and at Automattic, Inc before that where I worked on, Jetpack, and VIP.

I help lead both BuddyPressbbPress, and I’ve authored (and contributed to) a few other GPL licensed WordPress plugins. Cumulatively, they’ve been downloaded over 40 million times and code I’ve written is installed (and running pretty smoothly) on over 80 million websites worldwide.

Since April of 2017, I’m also a trustee for the village of East Troy, WI.

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

Let’s be friends. ❤️
