About Tracy Rotton

Hi, my name is Tracy Rotton. That’s pronounced “ROH-tuhn”.

What Do I Do?

Photo of Tracy RottonI build responsive web experiences. I prefer working with WordPress (in fact, I’m a core contributor to both the Twenty Thirteen and Twenty Fourteen themes), but have done front end development and theming on many other platforms such as Drupal, Expression Engine and Adobe Experience Manager (formerly CQ5). I spend most of my project time creating CSS with Sass, but also spend a fair amount of time writing JavaScript, mostly using jQuery. I can also build full-stack WordPress sites, including custom themes (my specialty) and plugins. To that end, I know my way around PHP fairly well.

Who Do I Do This For?

Last March, I announced the launch of Taupecat Studios, a digital marketing agency that aims to solve your website problems. We’re small now (okay, it’s really just me), but with a growing client base and some exciting projects in the works, we hope to grow into something more very soon.

Prior to that, I was the Front-End Architect for four years at RP3 Agency in Bethesda, Maryland. While there, I created digital solutions for clients like National HarborNorfolk Southern, Long & Foster, and the Washington Area Women’s Foundation. In doing so, I got to work with really great people on our Creative Technology team.

Before that, I worked for federal government contractor, Discovery Communications, and Marriott International, among others.

What Else Do I Do?

I speak at WordCamps, teach at General Assembly in Washington, D.C. and wrote a book on responsive WordPress theming. I also ski, swim, bike, and root for the Washington Redskins. Plus I have two great children. But largely, I’m obsessed with web stuff. 🙂

And I tweet. A lot. About all the things I mentioned above.
