Meet The Developer

Hi, I'm Cory LaViska. I'm a founder, a bootstrapper, and a huge fan of open source software. I spent the last two years single-handedly building, rebuilding, and polishing off Postleaf. I honestly believe it's one of the best publishing experiences in the world, and I hope you'll agree.

This project was made possible thanks to funding from my service Surreal CMS. Postleaf's development started up in New Hampshire, but now happens in Orlando, Florida. One day I'd like to bring my code back up to the mountains.

Last year my wife and I became parents of an amazing little girl. Being a father has taught me so much about life, love, and happiness. Therefore, this software is dedicated to my daughter, Sophia. Chase your dreams, little tanuki.
