I used to do consulting and go to school in Houston, then I moved to San Francisco where I worked at CNET Networks.

I left in late 2005 to found a new startup Automattic, which is the company behind, Akismet, Gravatar, bbPress, IntenseDebate, and more to come. I’m also an advisor to Sphere and WeGame
