Brett Jackson – @iambrettjackson

I am a web developer who loves building awesome web applications and of course anything WordPress. I built some of the custom things you see floating around this site like the deals plugin and widget.

Fun facts about me

  • If you can think of something you want WordPress to do, I can probably code it.
  • I can really geek out when talking about video games, headphones, or personal finance.
