Get To Know Mike Krapf

Written by Ryan Ray on February 13, 2012 News.

We’re continuing on in our series called “Getting To Know Woo” today. Our next brave ninja up is Mike. Mike is a fellow stateside member of the WooTeam. We’re actually not to far from each other, that is compared to the rest of the WooTeam. He’s living about two hours East from me in Ohio.

As mentioned Mike is one of our forum ninjas, actually a master forum ninja according to our meet the team page. 😉 I’m sure if you’ve used our forums more than once you’ve run into Mike taking care of you. Outside of the forums he also takes care of helping create some awesome themes with our other developers. Mike and Matty worked on my favorite theme of 2011, Wikeasi.

Mike Krapf – firefighter and support ninja!

When he’s not coding, he’s putting out fires and saving lives. If you needed any proof, checkout that awesome picture above! Finally, with any free time left he’s hanging out with his wife and two cute kids. Don’t ask me how he does it, but he pulls it off with ease it seems. Now checkout our interview below.


Here are a few ways you can see what Mike’s up to.

    Now I’m an even bigger fan of WooThemes knowing they’re powered by a fellow Ohioan. O-H!

    Keep up the great work.

    I-O! 🙂 I’m between Dayton and Cincinnati.

    Maybe we can all meetup at a WordCamp sometime. Ryan is just over in Indy and Scotty just north of Michigan in Canada.
