Joe A. Simpson Jr.
During endless, sun-soaked days Joe A Simpson Jr works at Metro LA, one of the largest transit agencies in the World, fighting the good fight to ease gridlock around Los Angeles County. Faced with a life-altering heart event in 2017, Joe A Simpson Jr pivoted, focusing FIRST on rediscovering the things he truly loved — WordPress, creative passions, teaching tech, and truly giving back.
He twilights by actively contributing to the WordPress Community — founding two WordPress-based Meetups (WordPress, Elementor), speaking or volunteering at over 20 WordCamps since 2017, is currently on the Organizing team for WordCamp Santa Clarita 2021, part of a WordPress initiative at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), and is a SiteGround Ambassador.
Joe is a fledgling Front-End Web Developer, User-Experience Designer, a11y advocate specializing in WordPress solutions, and the host of the Back Down Memory Lane Podcast.
