I'm CEO at Treehouse. Prior to joining the Treehouse team I was CTO at DreamFactory, creator of the popular namesake API management platform. Prior to DreamFactory I spent two decades building solutions spanning the architectural, agricultural, publishing, and telecom industries.
I'm also author of several books, including:
- Easy Laravel, Third Edition
- Beginning PHP and MySQL, Fourth Edition
- Easy PHP Websites with the Zend Framework, Second Edition
- Easy PayPal with PHP
- Easy Active Record for Rails Developers
I'm co-founder of the CodeMash Conference, although after 8 years I stepped away from daily involvement.
Founder of EmailReputationAPI, because I'm sick of bots and other unwanted leads wasting time.
