The About Page

👋 Hi! My name is Shane.

This blog is mostly about Cyber Security, WordPress and tech related things, but occasionally includes a few randomly categorized posts.


I am a transplant from Livermore/Pleasanton California where I was born and raised. I have been in Fresno about 6 years now. Some of the things I enjoy are CrossFit. (Blog Post: CrossFit and Asthma), Linux, Cybersecurity, anything having to do with cars, trucks and motorcycles, playing and creating music, photography and cinematography. My B.S. Degree is in Counseling Psychology (William Jessup University) though I never did anything with the degree.

One of my interests is WordPress, I started using WordPress in 2003 when it first hit the scene because b2 stopped being developed. Now I work at WordPress (Automattic) on WordPress VIP as a Team Lead for America’s West. If you are passionate about the web and want a career where you never stop learning and growing, join me over at Automattic on WordPress VIP. What is WordPress VIP? Good question, “We are WordPress VIP, the agile content platform leading a powerful enterprise ecosystem. As we fit seamlessly across your organization, enjoy the ease, flexibility, and freedom you need to scale valuable customer connections that drive your growth.” #

You can use the contact page here or head over to LinkedIn to ask me any questions about working at Automattic if you would like.

One of my favorite things about working at Automattic is our creed.

I will never stop learning. I love to read and learn new things. I am self-taught when it comes to most things. My career in tech, cybersecurity, theology, music mixing, programming, wood working, auto repair, etc. I love to learn and expand my understanding. Whether it’s books or videos or shadowing a professional, I really like process of becoming comfortable with something that was once foreign to me.
