About Joe A Simpson Jr
During endless, sun-soaked days Joe works at Metro (Los Angeles), one of the largest transit agencies in the country, fighting the good fight to ease gridlock around LA County.
Joe wanted to grow WordPress locally, starting two Meetups and leading three WordCamp Santa Claritas, including one that provided two days of dedicated accessibility presentations. These nineteen talks are the most of any WordCamp to date and were the first WordCamps north of Los Angeles and south of San Francisco since 2014.
He continues to advocate for open and usable web experiences as part of the Make WordPress Accessibility Team and is a Lead for WordCamp US 2023 in National Harbor, Maryland.
