I’ve been happily doing BuddyPress theme development since the days of BuddyPress 1.0. I think I can safely say that I’m one of the few people out there who actually learned about BuddyPress before WordPress. Over the years I’ve blogged a lot on BP-Tricks.com sharing BuddyPress tricks, created several BuddyPress themes (free and commercial) and I’m currently part of PressCrew; a WordPress/BuddyPress development adventure with my friend and business partner Marshall Sorenson. Besides our Infinity Theming Engine (http://infinity.presscrew.com) we’re also part of the Commons in a Box team.
