A design and marketing guy, Liam Dempsey is the owner and director of LBDesign, a small international consultancy. Liam grew the business from his own freelance work before relocating from Chicago to London in 2002.
Returning to the US in 2009, Liam was delighted to discover the WordPress community in Philadelphia. In 2012, with great support from local WordPress fans, he started the Philly ‘burbs WordPress Meetup, which is still running strong. Liam was lucky enough to be a co-organizer of WordCamp Philly 2014.
Always interested in the unique angle, Liam is the co-founder and co-editor of chickenmonkeydog, a daily, quirky blog that’s been running since 2008.
