Lucas Pelton

WordPress Developer

Lucas has been breaking programs since 1985 when he unsuccessfully tried to modify Parsec, a cartridge game for his Texas Instruments TI-99/4A “computer”. It turns out you just can’t do that. He’s come a long way since then, now successfully employing PHP and JavaScript + jQuery to build buttery-smooth user interfaces and super-clever and useful modifications to WordPress themes and plugins. Lucas is also an adept manager of Google Apps, DNS zones, and pretty much anything else thrown at him.

Though a native of California, Lucas is now an Oregonian to the core, and a Portlander to boot. You can tell by his extensive collection of mostly-working bikes and fully-working craft beer.
