I am a full-stack developer working for Zeek Interactive on WordPress themes, plugins, and mobile development. I started working with WordPress back when version 2.8 was the new hotness, and I live in its world.
Priscilla has been the Empress of Priscilla Christian Graphic Services since 1994. Began building Web projects in 1996 and discovered the wonderfulness of WordPress in 2010.
