Joe Chellman is a trainer and web designer. He frequently trains and speaks at workshops and conferences on open source web software. Joe is a web designer in the late 90s sense: a tech generalist who is capable of doing everything a website needs to come to life. Since he began tinkering with the web in university, he has gone on to build many dozens of websites for artists, nonprofits, and small businesses, both independently and in collaboration with other organizations around the United States and occasionally around the world. He is also a professional-caliber drummer and percussionist, so despite being a giant nerd, he has empathy for his fellow non-nerd humankind. He enjoys helping everyone get up to speed on the (mostly) joy and (sometimes) headaches of participating in the building of the web.
