Joe Hughes

WordPress Engineer

Joe brings an extensive design background to his work as a WordPress Engineer, helping him connect the dots across teams and between project phases to ensure smooth handoffs and exceptional results.

He applies an artistic flair to almost everything he does and particularly enjoys creating custom WordPress themes from scratch and finding creative ways to help clients add and edit website content without ever touching code.

Joe’s love of freedom and flexibility and his focus on delivering high-quality work make him an excellent fit for the Kanopi team.

Outside of work, surfing is Joe’s number one pastime, followed by other outdoor pursuits like hiking and backcountry camping. He also loves to travel, make wood-fired pizza, grow the world’s hottest peppers and enjoy a delicious craft beer or two.
