I’ve been a graphic designer for over 25 years. I love everything design. Once I started to design for the web, I started using WordPress. My studio Trailer Trash Design provides complete graphic design services for start-ups, small and medium sized companies. I love to eat pizza and try different kinds of beer.
Why Do You Use WordPress?
I use WordPress because of it’s flexibility and ease of use. My clients have wanted to become increasingly involved in the day-to-day operations of their websites and WordPress allows that to happen.
When and How Did You Start Using WordPress?
I started using WordPress about 8 years ago when we started a blog for the company that I was working for at the time. Since moving on, I’ve made WordPress my only choice for working on the web.
