Doug Stewart

Doug is a 15-plus-year-veteran of the IT industry, a long-time Linux user and has been using WordPress since version 1.0. He had to be dragged, kicking and screaming into using a Mac in 2006 or so and might even admit that it’s probably for the best if you catch him on the right day. He has a passion for systems and for getting the most out of WordPress and has applied his skills in the commercial, government contracting, healthcare, and general IT spheres.

Hailing from just outside Philadelphia, PA, Doug is currently an IT Whisperer (aka Senior Systems Engineer) for 10up and can be found co-organizing the monthly Philadelphia WordPress Meetup and WordCamp Philadelphia when he’s not working diligently behind the scenes. You can find him on Twitter @zamoose.
