About Tracy Rotton

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

Tracy Rotton

What Do I Do?

I 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?

For four years, I was the Front-End Architect at RP3 Agency in Bethesda, Maryland where 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 the federal government, Discovery Communications, and Marriott International, among others. I also did a fair share of freelance work over my career.

Now I’m looking to my next gig. Got any ideas?

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.
