I’m full-stack WordPress developer with over 22 years of experience. I’ve built, customized, secured and optimized hundreds – maybe thousands – of WordPress sites in that time. I focus on projects related to security issues, performance optimization, complex migrations, tool-building or automation, architecture simplification, and organizations with a high-profile/high-traffic online presence.
I recently concluded the better part of six years working at Automattic, the makers of WordPress.com and many other fine WordPress-related tools and services. Through my work on the company’s VIP team and then more recently as the lead of a Special Projects team, I provided expert WordPress consulting, theme and plugin development, security and performance auditing, troubleshooting, support and more to some of the biggest names on the web.
Before my time at Automattic I co-founded a web development agency where I led a team as large as 12 people serving clients across the US for close to 17 years.
I’m an active member of the larger WordPress community, as I’ve contributed to WordPress core, developed plugins, assisted other WordPress users in the community forums, and both spoken at and helped organize various WordCamps.
