I’m a new recruit to Codeable but certainly not new to the programming game.
With over 15 years of experience in the industry, I bring extensive technical expertise coupled with outstanding communication skills to the table. Having over 5 years of experience with the WordPress platform, I’ve worked with numerous plugins, themes and hosting platforms. During this period I’ve obtained some valuable skills including the ability to rapidly become familiar with new business processes/systems and have perfected a troubleshooting workflow to pinpoint the sources of issues. With a decade of experience working as an app developer across the full project lifecycle, I’m still hungry for solving problems and developing great solutions for my customers.

Andrew was exceptionally communicative, transparent, and professional in his work.
Always impressed with Andrew's speed and abilities.
Continuously excellent work
Second job with Andrew and will come back for more!
Andrew gave me a whole new experience in terms of responsiveness and communication that I never experienced before. It was hard to keep up with him finalizing tasks. Would/will definetly hire him again for future projects or tasks.
By far the most pro-active and helpful developer we have dealt with to date (and there have been a few!...) Will certainly seek out Andrew for future dev and maintenance help.
Top job - highly recommended
Andrew did an absolutely amazing job with every aspect of my project. He communicated eagerly and finished the tasks way ahead of his proposed schedule. I can't wait to work with him again.
Will definitely get in touch with Andrew for future projects. Communication was superb and quality was fantastic.
Very fast and friendly
