GET TO KNOW JON TRUJILLO
I’m a Designer, developer and “WordPress Guy” who is also Husband, Dad and Christian. I love all things technology and constantly look for new ways to improve my skills as a creative. I love to shoot photos and I’m a habitual doodler… I pretty much just love creating. I believe creativity is a gift that will go away if not used. I cherish it too much to let it go. I have the heart of a teacher and love leading others down paths that will make them better creatives and technologists.
I’m currently the lead web designer and developer at Tytanium Ideas, an amazing social media marketing company in Lincoln California. I’m glad to be a part of the Tytanium Ideas family.
We’re thrilled Jon will be speaking at WordCamp Sacramento 2016 on A Full Stack WordPress Project Workflow!
