About

David Kennedy speaking at WordCamp US 2015

I work as a Senior UX Designer at Ad Hoc, focusing on accessibility.

I’m an accessibility evangelist who loves the open web and open source code. I curate a popular newsletter called Accessibility Weekly.

Before my current role, I led teams and wrote code at Automattic, working on WordPress themes in all sorts of different ways. I’ve contributed to WordPress and the WordPress community too. That included leading Twenty Seventeen, one of the default themes shipped with each version of WordPress. I’ve also worked with great people at U Group, The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and The Arc doing different web things. In another life, I use to write words instead of code as a journalist.

I root for the Florida Gators, dig CrossFit workouts, love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, enjoy reading Raymond Carver, play video games too much and adore making my daughter smile. I have a lovely wife, Joeleen, one awesome daughter, Skye, and one cool cat (Tigger).
