About Gary Jones

My name is Gary Jones, and I’m a software engineering lead at WordPress VIP, and I’m based in Basingstoke in the UK.

I’m a father of twins and married to a crafter. My background is as a former teacher in schools and prisons. I ran my own business, Gamajo, for 10 years.

I want to write more. I do tweet, though I left Facebook but still need to move all my photos on to this site. I wrote poetry many years ago.

I listen to music while I code and run. I try and do parkrun regularly, and I’ve completed a few half marathons, a road marathon and a trail marathon. My goal is to run an ultra marathon.

I like to meet up with WordPress and PHP communities. I’ve been an organiser for WordCamp London three times and was a co-organiser for the WordPress London monthly meetup.

contribute to WordPress core and am a Locale Manager and General Translation Editor for British English.
