From there, he helped to launch other sites related to Ghost, including www.ghostforbeginners.com, www.allaboutghost.com/, and www.allghostthemes.com/. His background in IT helped with troubleshooting problems and portraying them in a way people can clearly understand. He has been around Ghost from the very beginning and has helped many people install and use the Ghost platform.



Andy Boutte
