Robert Gillmer, Webmaster

My name is Robert Gillmer, and I’m a WordPressaholic. Yup, that’s right, I’m addicted to WordPressahol. I’ve been building websites for three and a half years now, and have been using WordPress to do so for 3 years and 25 weeks. (Don’t hold that against me.) For those that know the release schedule, Thelonious introduced me to WordPress.

Billie Hillier, User & Business Track Coordinator

Billie Hillier is a solutions consultant, event producer, and educator.

Looking back I think I have been using and recommending WordPress to clients for almost (or over) a decade. I love the flexibility WP offers users and control users have with owning their site.

Being passionate about all things related to online marketing and  WordPress being a huge component of a successful online presence, I am always trying to help others make the most of the WordPress site for their business goals.

Andrew DiMino, Lead Organizer

Andrew DiMino is the Publisher, President and Founder of CarbSmart, Inc., publisher of CarbSmart.com.

For 14 years I ran multiple online stores selling sugar free and gluten free foods. I used to enjoy my mission of helping those people that want to get healthier with foods that are right for their metabolism/body type until competing against HUMONGOUS online retailers that did more sales in 3 hours than I did in a year (you know who I mean) took the fun of growing my business from scratch. Thankfully from day one, having a content creation strategy that included a section of my web sites dedicated to educating and informing my customers about their chosen lifestyle through articles and informational guides set me up for an awesome transition in 2012.

After I closed the online stores, I focused my attention to serving my target audience by publishing a mulit-author online magazine and gluten free & low carb books and cookbooks. WordPress gives me the freedom to reach my target audience with a platform that is easy to use, easy to maintain and easy to add content to. And for the little bit of eCommerce I still do, fuhgettaboutit!
