About  Us


My wife, Laurel, and I started photography as a hobby in 2012. It lets us capture moments that are not possible with a smartphone. It also lets us venture outside away from our work keyboards.

I am the Special Projects Director at New Media Campaigns, a design, development, and marketing firm in Carrboro, North Carolina where I've happily worked since 2007.

I am also the author of Modern PHP published by O'Reilly Media. I founded the Slim Framework, a popular PHP micro framework that enables rapid web application and API development. I also started and currently curate PHP The Right Way, a popular initiative in the PHP community that encourages good practices and disseminates quality information for PHP developers around the world.

We both graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2008 and currently reside in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
