Hi!
My name is
Brett Shumaker

I help make the internet. More specifically, I build custom WordPress plugins and custom WordPress websites that live on the internet.

About Me

tldr;

A Nashville transplant before it was cool. Born and raised in Ohio then moved to Tennessee in 2003. I hold a B.F.A. in Graphic Design and have been building things with WordPress since 2008. I’m heavily involved with my local WordPress community and have been helping organize WordCamp Nashville since 2013. When I’m not wearing out my keyboard, I’m likely spending time with my wife and daughter, taking photos, or playing guitar.
