I’m Jason Clarke, 10up’s newest Senior Web Strategist, and the first 10upper from Maine, a beautiful neighbor that, for many of you, is up and to your right.
My love for making websites started as a college student experimenting with services like GeoCities and Homestead. Since my first paying web developer gig 13 years ago (a whopping $100 fee for a whole site), I’ve been a blogger, freelancer, and corporate web developer. For the past eight years, I’ve been a project manager working with a small team of experts to plan, build, and support sites of all sizes for small businesses and educational organizations. Along the way, I wrote a best selling book, and even had the opportunity to be the founding developer and a board member for the Media Bloggers Association, the first national organization providing community support to bloggers.
When it comes to WordPress, I’ve been on board since version 1.5 back in 2005, after retiring my homegrown CMS for my personal blog, jasonclarke.org. In the WordPress community, I’ve contributed to the late great WP Daily, released a starter theme, and am currently a volunteer with the WordPress Theme Review Team.
I’m looking forward to working with 10up’s clients, partners, and team 10up itself, as we continue showing the world that WordPress is a beautiful, fun, and human platform for telling stories.
