About

Hi there!

David Kennedy speaking at WordCamp US 2015I work as a Theminator (that’s my official title) at the ever-awesome Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com and many other fine web products. I wrangle themes for WordPress.com, making them the best they can be and ensuring everyone can find a theme they love.

I’m an accessibility evangelist who loves the open web and open source code. I contribute to WordPress and the WordPress community. Before coming to Automattic, I worked with great people at Rock Creek Strategic Marketing, The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and The Arc doing all sorts of web stuff. 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, one silly dog (Charlie) and one cool cat (Tigger).

You can learn more about my professional experience by visiting my Linkedin profile. You can also view my resume  on this site.
