Hi, I'm Kailey Lampert
I've only been playing around with WordPress for about 2 years. I'm not much
of a designer, but I do love code - and I'm always interested to see what I
can learn from somebody else's handiwork. Hopefully I'll be able to use what
I've learned so far and be able to give back to the community.
Several years ago, I put some effort into writing my own little blogging
platform, but once I learned about WordPress - I never looked back.
I've written a handful of dinky plugins, and I've created numerous themes
for clients through my job (admittedly, not all of the greatest quality...).
