My name is Michael Cain and I’m a Portland, Maine-based web developer. Born and raised in North Carolina, I moved to New England after graduating from the University of North Carolina with my then-girlfriend (now-wife), Meredith, and black lab, Orvis, in search of adventure, good food, and great beer.

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