I’m from Portsmouth in southern England and now live in Sarasota, Florida.
Between leaving England and arriving in the US, there were a few stops in between, including Wales, Mexico, Japan and Australia.
My family is one long line of teachers and most of my travels were paid for by either teaching work or web design.
I now combine teaching and web design by running OSTraining.com which teaches people how to build websites. OSTraining clients include Apple, Pfizer and the U.S. Departments of Energy, Education and Commerce.
I wrote three books: Joomla Explained, Joomla 3 Explained and Drupal 7 Explained. Those books were the best-selling books for their platforms, so I’ve been suckered into writing more in the months to come. Look for WordPress Explained, Drupal 8 Explained and others.
