I am the (mt) Media Temple WordPress Evangelist. (mt) Media Temple is a developer-friendly web hosting company, in Culver City, California, where I am known as “mt_Suzette”. I keep (mt) Media Temple support up-to-date on the latest in WordPress, I also speak at WordPress Meetups and WordCamps nationwide, blog at suzettefranck.com, and I am also a regular contributor on WPWatercooler.com. I have been a part of the WordPress Community since 2011, when I first spoke on BuddyPress at OC WordCamp.
I am hand-coder at heart, and I have been in love with web development for over 18+ years, including surviving the table layouts and font tags of the 90's, up through coding my own PHP and MySQL content management system in 2000 before CMSs were in wide use. I discovered WordPress five years ago and I have used it to develop over 200 WordPress custom themes, mostly from the Twenty Eleven default theme.
I have always embraced new technology and I am eager to learn new things and show them to the world. I am an advocate for open source, wiki and documentation, and web standards. I am passionate about teaching others on the wonders of WordPress, and my hope is to inspire others to collaborate and share their knowledge.
