Hello there!

Daniel Schutzsmith is a rare breed – a hybrid of equal parts design, code, strategy, and management. 

Currently, Daniel is the Website and Digital Project Manager for Pinellas County Government, creating websites and interactive experiences to help the public get the information they need easily and intuitively.

When not working, he enjoys giving back his time to the WordPress community as a WordCamp organizer (WCUS 20, WC Miami 2020, WC NYC 2018), a Meetup organizer (New Port Richey WordPress Meetup), a Producer at The WP Minute and also through building several side projects:

Twitter Spaces

Over the past twenty-two years Daniel has worked with clients such as Adobe, Greenpeace, The Pixies, MTV, Phish, Nelson Mandela Foundation, Oxfam, PBS, NYC.gov, They Might Be Giants, TBS, Pepsico, Dave Matthews Band and many more. Previously he also taught at NYU SCPS, SUNY New Paltz, Westchester Community College, and the School of Visual Arts.

After all of that, in his free time he enjoys walking in the fresh air, coding by the pool, drinking craft non-alcoholic beer, and hanging out with his family.
