Hugh Lashbrooke

I'm a community builder and plugin developer who is thoroughly passionate about WordPress, the community and all that it stands for. I work at Automattic on the community team, where I help WordCamp and Meetup organisers around the world build their own local communities.

At Automattic I work with WordPress community organisers from all over the world and help them start and manage their local meetups and WordCamps. It’s a thoroughly rewarding job that allows me to not only work on something that I am totally passionate about, but also empower others to push their passions forward.

I’m also a plugin developer with a few plugins on the repo, which helps to keep my dev skills going since my day job is no longer full-time development focussed.
