I started in Joomla!, by accident.  I was volunteering with a non-profit organization that badly needed a new website.  They were looking for something that was robust, but friendly, and easy to use.  After some searching, I stumbled across Joomla 1.7.  After some reading, a new website was born that enabled them to promote their events, accept registrations, and share with visitors their message.

Since then I have grown more in love with Joomla!, despite using many other technologies and CMS platforms, as well as teaching a CMS course.  I've taken that love for Joomla! and used it to inspire the younger generation, participating in area internship programs teaching students interested in web technology, Joomla.

I enjoy meeting other Joomlers and learning from them.  You could say that I've jumped in with both feet, I lead JUG Chicago NorthJoomlaDay Chicago, JoomlaCamp Chicago, and in 2019 first time hosting Pizza, Bugs, and Fun

My company, Danico Enterprises, specialized in Joomla! websites and marketing. I love sharing with my clients all the things that Joomla can do. With many of clients being self-maintainers it is a great opportunity to not only share, but also teach them how to be apart of the site update process allowing them to experience for themselves the power of Joomla.
