Decoupled Drupal in Practice: The comprehensive guide to decoupled Drupal across the stack.

Hi! I'm Preston.

I work, speak, and write on topics like digital experiences, headless CMS, the decentralized web, conversational design, and the future of content.

I ran an innovation lab.

I launched Acquia Labs, an innovation lab at Acquia, the open-source digital experience company, where I also did product strategy and developer relations.

I write books & more.

I wrote the book on decoupled Drupal, with a foreword by Dries Buytaert, who called it “a must-have guide.” I’ve also written for A List Apart, Smashing Magazine, and CMSWire.
