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 very helpful and efficient. The job was difficult due to the obfuscated database within LearnDash. Andrew persevered and got the job done.

Andrew did an excellent job on our project. He was very thorough and patient with us. We have limited knowledge on WP and WooCommerce and he really took his time in his explanations and has now taken our site to the next level. Thanks to Andrew we are now able to automate our business which allows us to be more efficient with our time. We couldn't be more grateful to have such an experienced developer on our side. We feel so much more confident about our e-commerce website and its foundation. Before meeting Andrew, we felt very lost with with our website and lost countless hours manually inputting information. We look forward to working with him on future projects.
