Current Projects

For personal projects outside of my work at WP Engine, I tend to gravitate towards WordPress plugins with a focus on modern WordPress development and Full Site Editing. I’ve also built a block theme or two.

Below are all my current projects—those that are under active development as well as a few plugins that are quite old but still receive support. I hope you find some of them useful, many are being used to power this site.
