Adam Warner has worked as a paper boy, blueberry farmer, Ritz Carlton valet, tour guide, maker of office furniture, and as an Amazon employee. His fascination with the internet started in the early 1990s when a fellow employee at the pizza place he worked at invited him over to get on the BBS (Bulletin Board System). From there he was hooked into the possibility of connecting with individuals across the world. Nowadays, he is an internet business and marketing consultant specializing in the use of WordPress. Adam Warner is the Co-founder of FooPlugins—creators of the FooBox and FooGallery plugins and soon, FooMedia.io.
