This site acts as my online presence, where I write and discuss topics that interest me. My interests for the most part have been on WordPress development with which I have developed several themes and an expert understanding of its features. I also tend to talk about design and related topics that I feel strongly about, and these typically range from best practices for web design to opinions on the state of the creative industry.
About This Theme
The “Dusk” theme that you see with this site design is a juxtaposition of fluid and structured elements intended as an illustration on how each can both contrast and complement the other. The idea for this theme has been kicking around in my head for a little while and I had several false starts to its creation, but found incentive recently to push forward with the development of this concept.
“Dusk” provided some interesting challenges, especially with the implementation of the portfolio. The shift in focus from an article driven site to a portfolio site required restructuring the information architecture in a way that preserved existing links (as not to have to resort to redirects). This theme leverages extended features of WordPress’ along with its core capabilities as a publishing engine.
I have two other popular WordPress themes that I host here:
