Welcome to TwisterMc.com the personal website of me, Thomas McMahon.
I live in Minneapolis, MN; or rather the western suburbs. I love to program and design which is a great combo as I like to work to figure out how something is created, then put my own spin on it.
I’m a big WordPress fan and I’m always coding, updating, theming or hacking one of my many WordPress installs to add new features and functionality. I also know quite a bit about building Facebook applications, SEO and Google Analytics; just to name a few.
I use to do a lot of little projects such as Firefox themes, addons and some WordPress plugins, but most of my time now is spent being a dad.
Some of my most popular creations, although outdated now, include the iPox and TinselTown Firefox 3 themes along with the Chicklet Creator and Social Bookmark Creator WordPress plugins. I’ve also got a few Firefox extensions for web developers; yExplore and GA? – Is Google Analytics Installed.
The only project that is still alive and well would be the Twitter weather alerts. yExplore and GA? also live on, however they don’t get updated. I wish I had more time to do little side projects like that, however I’m having a blast raising my daughter.
For my day job I work at The Nerdery. I’m a front-end web developer, Facebook specialist and I also lead projects. I try to learn a little bit about everything and help out anywhere I can. It’s a great job as I’m always working on something new, working with someone new or taking on something challenging. It seems like every day I learn something new.
Other interests include Apple, social media, roller-coasters, Wii, music and so much more. Plus I love to watch the weather. It fascinates me how unpredictable it is.
A walk on a nice day with the wife and our little girl Lily is always a great thing too. Nothing like getting away from it all and just enjoying the family.
