Since its creation, Phil Walton has been using Joomla moving his client base away from his own primitive CMS to Joomla!

An avid rower on the Thames, juggler, cricket fan, warm beer tasting expert and unicyclist, he is also a patented inventor and is owned by many cats that take terns in looking after him.
Nicholas is a Mechanical Engineer turned web developer. He found Mambo — Joomla's precursor — in 2004 and his life was never the same.
He's the author of several popular extensions for Joomla and a frequent contributor to the Joomla core. He currently lives in the coast of Athens, Greece with his wife, daughter and two cats. He likes to credit the Joomla community for giving him a business and a family — he met his wife at a Joomla conference, after all!
When he's not writing code, documentation or articles for Joomla and his extensions he enjoys tinkering with mechanical keyboards, playing D&D and watching sci-fi series.
Hi! I'm Crystal, the Founder and UX Engineer of Lucid Fox, a small website design studio which builds research-backed websites for nonprofit organizations.
I've been building websites for years and have spent time in agencies as a front end developer, web designer, and UX researcher. I was first introduced to the Joomla community in 2014, and never looked back!
Before I decided to go pro with Joomla (in 2014) I was a writer/journalist for 15 years.
In 2009 I started working with Joomla, not knowing anything about webdesign. I joined a JUG in 2012, two months later I was co-organizer :) (and stayed co-organizer for about five years). I wrote articles about Joomla in a Dutch webdesigner magazine and speak at JUGs and JoomlaDays. I was on the Dutch JoomlaDagen team for three years. Since 2017 I'm a member of the team organizing Joostock (a Joomlacamp/unconference event).
I was the editor of the Dutch Joomla web agency brochure, a brochure webdesigners can use to convince their potential clients that Joomla is the right choice for them.
At Joomla Forum for the Future (2020) I volunteered to contribute as an author/blogger/copywriter.
I run a web agency in the Netherlands, WebLab42, with my partner. We create and maintain websites for small businesses and non-profit organisations.
Ahmad Moussa is a Joomla! Webmaster since 2013 and has acquired the Joomla 3 Administrator Certification when he visited JoomlaDay Madrid 2017 event in Madrid, Spain. He has a Bachelors Degree (BA) in Computer and Communication Engineering and looking forward to achieve more.
His Joomla! story started in 2013 when he was looking for a CMS, he had read about Wordpress, Joomla, and Drupal but was more drawn to Joomla! and decided to build a website for his Village (Lala, West Bekaa, Lebanon) after taking some tutorials. That was the start...after 2 years he wanted to give something back to the community so he started answering few unanswered questions in the forum and just kept going. After that he decided to help more by joining Joomla! Showcase Directory Team, Volunteer Portal Team, Joomla! User Groups Team, Joomla! Community Translation Team, Joomla! Certification Ambassador Team, Joomla! User Research & Strategy Working Group Team, and Joomla! Community Magazine Team...He is really proud to be a Joomler!
