My name is Michael Cain and I’m a Portland, Maine-based software engineer. Born and raised in North Carolina, I moved to New England after graduating from the University of North Carolina with my wife, Meredith, and black lab, Orvis, in search of adventure, good food, and the ocean.

In general, I spend my days working to fine-tune the checkout and purchase management experience on, as an engineering lead at Automattic, my evenings chasing our puppy, Thatcher, around the house, and my nights dreaming about how to make tomorrow’s WordPress sites even better.
