Jeremy Ward is a Backend Developer at WebDevStudios, a WordPress design and development firm specializing in custom themes, plugins, support, security, Multisite, BuddyPress, and other open source solutions.
A native of St. Paul, Minnesota, Jeremy got his start in web development as a hobby, learning to build static websites for his bands and friends. This part-time curiosity eventually blossomed into an interest in database queries and server-side languages and, by 2013, he found himself working at a local agency developing custom WordPress themes for small businesses and non-profits.
Jeremy currently volunteers on the organizing committee for WordCamp Minneapolis-St. Paul and also co-organizes a bi-monthly meetup for WordPress developers in the Twin Cities. He is passionate about code quality, modular design, and developer tools, and has begun converting that passion into speaking engagements at local meetups and conferences.
When he’s not geeking out about software development, Jeremy enjoys playing board games, seeing live stand-up comedy, and taking walks around his neighborhood.
