It is time that I talk a bit about myself. I’ve been writing here for years, publishing my thoughts, technical documents, and most personal experiences. But who am I?

Howdy! I’m Rich Collier.


By day, I’m a web developer, systems wrangler, and code ninja. I make all things Internet. I do all things open-source. I build some of the biggest websites on the Internet with WordPress. I work on WordPress.com and Jetpack at Automattic. I love public speaking.

By night, I’m a father, husband, and foodie. I cook epic meals with my wife, entertain my two energetic sons, and brew wine and beer from scratch.

In a past life I flew airplanes and sang rock & roll. Sometimes, I travel.

Also, I fish. A lot. Offshore, saltwater, big prey is my favorite game – but I’m not stubborn. With few exceptions, if it swims I want to catch it and eat it. I write about that also, albeit seldom. My boat is the FVMAHI.COM.
