Brian is the co-founder of, a WordPress only development shop. Since he comes from a background of building complex web applications, he has always looked at utilizing WordPress for more than a blogging system or basic CMS. Brian and the team at WDS have built several non traditional websites utilizing WordPress as an application framework. Some recently deployed projects include an internal employee training system for StarBucks and an iPad/WordPress hybrid app for all of the YMCAs in NYC that logs member activity and awards badges. WDS is currently working on a project for the Dallas Museum of Art that will have an iPad kiosk at each exhibit to allow visitors to interact with each exhibit and receive badges based on their activity, all built with WordPress!
