Tammy Hart joins 10up

“Howdy ya’ll!” I’m the new girl that hails from the South by way of Alabama and Oklahoma. Don’t let my country girl roots give you the wrong idea; I’m a geeky introvert that spends most of my time wrangling code and producing original user interface designs from the comfort of my air conditioned office space. When I’m not hunkered over my keyboard working on my latest project, I can be found playing wife to my husband of 11 years and mom to our three daughters.

I’ve been in the business of creating websites for over 7 years, much of that time spent working for myself and honing my craft. My years as a freelancer have fostered an appreciation for both creative design and solid coding. I am passionate about pixel perfection and love to see a project from blank canvas to final launch.

WordPress is my favorite playground. I’ve designed custom themes and plugins for clients, and released free themes and plugins for the WordPress community. I’ve  spoken at over a dozen events, most of which were WordCamps, and have taught classes on blogging and building websites with WordPress.

 

When I started to consider joining a team, I was looking for an opportunity to be challenged – to flex my design and development muscles, and have a team that could back me up. At 10up, I’ll have an opportunity to work with exciting clients and some of the best WordPress developers out there – and I couldn’t be more excited to be on board.

Editor’s Note from Jake: I first met Tammy at WordCamp Miami 2010, which, for the sake of 10up trivia, is also where I first met Jess, who was co-organizing that year’s camp. I was struck by how friendly she was and how great she was behind the podium as a speaker. Since then, I’ve watched her star rise in the WordPress community as a speaker, developer, and organizer. Tammy has a very tasteful design aesthetic, an innate attention to detail, and a passion for building great websites. I’m thrilled to welcome Tammy as our first in house, creative designer, and as another addition to our first class engineering team.

    Congratulations Tammy! I thought Jake’s comments were interesting. I too met you and Jess at Miami WordCamp 2010. I think everyone saw you two as rising stars in the Word Camp Community. Tell Jess And Jake hello. And keep up the good design work.
