I wanted to take the opportunity to thank Brian Gardner, Founder of StudioPress (the makers of the Genesis framework), CPO and Partner at Copyblogger Media not to mention also a fellow avid Starbucks lover.
Creativity is one my my favorite things, it makes me feel alive and free. Starting off my website design journey I had come across some not so sustainable ways to produce a website, and then I was introduced to Studiopress and the Genesis Framework for WordPress. This framework is built by Brian and other fabulous developers that I can trust to provide me a fresh, clean canvas to create on. What I like to call a lean, mean framework machine.. literally.
Brian is one hell of a mentor that I strive to become. He is not only ridiculously knowledgeable and LOVES what he does, he voluntarily helps others’ along their creative journey. On his blog he provides code snippets and Genesis tutorials to make a smoother ride for the Genesis community. On Twitter he stays active and involved answering questions from the #GenesisWP crew including myself. Check out my sweet new social links at the bottom of this page, and my new social share buttons. Brian taught me that.
What makes a remarkable mentor is the ability to
- provide constructive feedback
- be accessible
- be admirable
Brian blows away all aspects. I am forever thankful that such a busy, creative, successful man can be all of these things. I thank you for the platform you let me create on and the person you make me want to become. Your energy is contagious. You are beyond an impact to the world we live in.
Thank you, Brian.
