So that’s me, Caspar. 1975er. Married to a beautiful woman. No* children. One cat. Based on the former edge of the Western world.

I’m a Digital Marketer at Human Made, a WordPress development agency that brings open source to big publishers and enterprise-level clients.
Before joining my current team, I worked in WordPress-related customer support for five years, with a strong focus on website performance and UX.

There are a couple of community events I’ve helped building such as my neighbourhood WordPress meetup in Potsdam and the 2012 and 2013 iterations of WP Camp Berlin, both of which led the German WordPress community to reboot during WordCamp Hamburg in 2014.

I was also honoured to be invited on the first ever WordCamp Europe organiser team, an experience that shifted my mind towards the Community.

Looking for a short bio? Look no further:
Caspar Hübinger has a fundamental interest in people and how they interact. As a self-taught post-dotcom web developer with a focus on human experience and a fascination for simplicity, his activities around the web, particularly the WordPress ecosystem, have included product design, support, translation, event organisation, as well as volunteering and speaking at conferences.
While plotting world peace, Caspar spends his day wrestling for words at Human Made.

I believe “there is something good in this world, Mr. Frodo” and I dare hoping it is of endless power and ever superior intelligence.

Other random facts about myself:

  • I play a pretty ok blues/jazz piano and Hammond organ.
  • I wrote a song about WordPress.
  • I saw Nelson Mandela dancing while standing barely 2 meters away from him, and it probably changed my view on leadership forever.

Feel free to contact me on Twitter or WordPress Slack if you can solemnly swear you’re up to no good!

*“No children” in fact is a short-cut, our first-born died hours after birth. We learned we were, by far, not alone with an experience like that, and chose to embrace it. We haven’t become parents a second time, though. When in a conversation I sometimes prefer to take the short-cut and say “no children”, particularly when I feel the rest of the story would complicate things. Regardless of that type of situation, I usually feel comfortable being approached about the topic.
