Before you hire me, why don’t you get to know me a little better?

What Makes Me Different?

Lately, the market has become so saturated with freelancers and WordPress designers and “developers”. The majority of them claim to be able to develop solutions for your site. The truth is, many of them purchase pre-built themes from theme marketplaces such as Theme Forest and then install third party plugins to add in pieces of functionality that wasn’t included in the theme they purchased. You’ll pay them a low flat rate fee and they’ll put together a hack job to have you’re site up and running quickly. Although turnaround time is fast, and the price is low, these sites aren’t scale-able and are sure to require maintenance fairly quickly, costing you additional money. Sites like this often break when plugins are updated, or a new version of WordPress core is released.

What makes me different is that I develop all types of fully customized and highly scale-able WordPress solutions. These solutions range from full fledged enterprise level themes, community wide network sites, forum based sites, personal blogs and portfolio sites, hyper local news platforms and custom plugin development for all types of WordPress sites. At heart I am a problem solver, and someone who loves to help those around me.

Not only have I been working with WordPress for numerous years, I frequent WordPress meetups, attend and volunteer at WordCamps and have contributed directly to the core code base that powers WordPress itself. I currently have and maintain sixteen (yes, you read that right – 16!) plugins in the WordPress plugin repository, and I work full time as a WordPress Product Engineer at GoDaddy.

It’s safe to say that I really know WordPress, the code that powers it and the all that WordPress has to offer.
