Welcome, my name is Jeremy, I am a 38 yr. old WordPress and PHP developer living with my wife, two sons and our dog Happy in an old farm house at the end of a long quarter mile driveway nestled deep in the vast expanse of mid-western farmland.

For the past 9 years I have worked as a web developer and consultant under the name Papertree Design. I like to think that my specialties include web application development, WordPress plugin development and project management. But, it’s probably more helpful for you to hear it from someone else.

Prior experience

  • Briefly held a leadership role at Happy Joe Media in the early days.
  • Worked as a web developer for a small local studio prior to going solo.
  • Traveled the US for a bit as an artwork installer for an amazing local art consultancy, interiors and framing manufacturer.
  • Traveled outside the US during 4 proud years as a member of the US military.

About this site

This site is my little place to share thoughts, experiences, and ideas relating to web development, freelance consulting and project management. I try to keep it fairly current and will attempt to write a little more often in 2017. There are also some old gems floating around in the archives, posts that date back to my early days as a developer and freelance consultant. Some of them are fairly embarrassing but I like to keep them around as a reminder of the journey.

Technical information

The site was designed and developed in the browser using Sublime Text. It runs on WordPress. The theme is a custom job using one of my favorite starter themes Bones. Fonts are provided by Typekit. Site is served up by Linode.
