Meet the Easy Digital Downloads team

Who we are. What we do. Why we're here.

Kyle Maurer

Kyle is the go to guy for any lead guitar or marketing related needs at EDD. He's been developing websites since 2009 and loves making WordPress plugins.

Additionally Kyle enjoys brewing (and drinking) craft beer in his home state of Michigan where that kind of thing is quite popular. There are very few varieties he'll turn down when offered but a hop-heavy IPA or a barrel aged anything will typically get him quite excited.

During the day, Kyle divides his time between organizing WordPress events in Jackson and Ann Arbor, preparing talks for WordCamps, co-hosting a WordPress advice podcast, hacking on his latest plugin project, and helping EDD customers make their online stores flourish.

Daniel Goldak

Shortly after randomly meeting Pippin at Starbucks, Daniel joined the EDD team in 2018 to help with support. He's worked in the corporate world doing support for 10 years but also began using WordPress in 2012 helping bloggers & podcasters with their websites & stores. Since then Daniel fell in love with helping people use WordPress to grow their business.

When he's not helping customers he spends time with his wife and two kids, enjoys reading, cooking BBQ, working on house projects and is preparing to overtake Phil as EDD's head drummer.

Ashley Gibson

Ashley is a dual American and British citizen who loves three things: coding, reading, and lifting weights.

Robin Cornett

Robin joined the Easy Digital Downloads team in 2020, after ten years of building WordPress sites for clients, and eventually creating plugins as well.

She's based outside of beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee, and loves spending time with her husband, three children, and feisty dog, whether that means hiking in the woods, playing a game, or curling up on the back porch with a good book.

Chris Klosowski

Chris started out as an EDD user to distribute his own WordPress Plugins, but quickly moved to contributing to Core Development.

Starting as a contributor nearly 10 years ago, he is now the President of Easy Digital Downloads. Prior to joining the Easy Digital Downloads team, Chris spent 4.5 years as developer at GoDaddy where he had a wide range of jobs including Support, Enterprise Scale WordPress environments, C#, .Net, Javascript, and Node.JS finishing his tenure as part of the Managed WordPress development team. During this time Chris continued to contribute to EDD in his free time as a WordPress community Member.

He’s a WordCamp speaker and volunteer and also co-organizes the WordPress Developer Meetup in the Phoenix WordPress community.
