Hi, I’m Josh Pollock and I’m a WordPress plugin developer, educator and entrepreneur. WordPress, the tool that powers 25% of the internet has allowed me to travel the country, make new friends, be a part of an awesome community and start multiple companies. It is amazing luck that I chose WordPress for my first blog, and figured out how easy it was to start hacking my theme.
When I’m not pressing all the words, I enjoy reading, exercising, and tasty foods. I live in Tallahassee, FL with my wife Alicia. My educational background is in environmental studies, which I promise you is a perfect foundation for what I do today, seriously.
