Leonard Murphy was one of the earliest adopters of ExpressionEngine when it was first released in 2004, and was the author of a series of free tutorials that helped other new users to see what ExpressionEngine had to offer. The tutorials were a hit, and over the years, ExpressionEngine became more and more popular, so in 2008 Leonard expanded his tutorials into the first edition of Building Websites with ExpressionEngine. Two years later, with the release of ExpressionEngine 2, Leonard is back with a completely revised new edition.
Leonard started his career in the UK, graduating from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. In 2004, he moved to the United States and currently works for Summit Credit Union (a not-for-profit financial institution headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin). He also provides consulting and technical support for small business websites.
