Lead Organizers

Larry Swanson

Larry is a long-time publisher of both old-fashioned books and newfangled websites (all on WordPress, of course). He currently publishes, writes, and speaks on office fitness and orthopedic self-care as part of his massage practice. In addition to his work as the sponsor wrangler for WordCamp Seattle last year and co-chairing this year’s WordCamp, he helps organize Ignite Seattle and volunteers for many other Seattle community events, including the Moisture Festival and Seattle Empty Bowls.

Sheila Hoffman

Sheila has had her own business since 1988, first as a print designer, then on the web. She’s been designing in WordPress since 2009 with the benefit of visual theme frameworks. Sheila has volunteered at 6 WordCamps in various capacities. She’s pleased to be co-chairing this year’s event for the second year. When she isn’t using WordPress you will find her tandem cycling with her husband, and hanging out with her co-housing community.
