A Spring Week in NYC
In September 2021, I became a Happiness Engineer Lead at Automattic for WordPress.com after spending a little over 5 years as a Happiness Engineer.

Happiness Division Meetup in Denver
Last week, I spent time in Denver with around 400 other Automatticians, mostly from our Happiness division – support for WordPress.com, Jetpack, WooCommerce, Tumblr, and many more awesome services.
Our First Family Trip – Texas

Taylor Swift, Charli XCX, and Camila Cabello
The moment we had been waiting for since Christmas had arrived. It was October 6th and Loretta (my little sister) and I were in Arlington, TX for what would be an extremely fun night – the Taylor Switch reputation tour.
Automattic Grand Meetup 2018
Almost 2 months ago, Anthony and I traveled to Orlando, FL for our company’s “Grand Meetup”. We had a blast! See, the company we work for is distributed meaning we don’t work from one office but rather from home, coffee shops, coworking offices, or even from the road for those who are nomadic. To balance things…
