Founder and Creative Director
I love empowering business people to market and sell online as easily as they can in person. That should be easy, but you know from surfing the web that there are lost opportunities galore. I started New Tricks to fix that problem, several great clients at a time!
For eight years, I have helped companies build stellar WordPress websites. I am an organizer of the Atlanta WordPress Meetup Group and lead the team that for four years has put on WordCamp Atlanta. I love to speak on WordPress, marketing and reinvention. Because I have reinvented myself so much, I think I may be the mother of reinvention!

Michael Earley got into WordPress by doing websites for the engineers and musicians he came across while delivering coffee at his Audio Technology and Production Internship after getting his degree from the Art Institute. He got hooked by WordPress since he can actually make a living with it. When Michael isn’t tinkering with graphics and code he spends his time playing basketball, taking pictures, and using his degree in audio engineering to create crazy good digital sounds – as a hobby. Michael is also a regular speaker at WordPress events and enjoys training people on WordPress. Everyone loves Michael.
