Hey, I’m David – Developer, Business Owner & Consultant with 20+ Years of Experience

I specialize in building high performance, scalable WordPress plugins, and themes using best practices with extendibility and security as core values.

My strengths as a developer are as follows:

  • Being the architect behind your business idea and giving me the freedom to research, design, and build your business using the latest technologies, with scalability, extendability, and future-proofing as standard. Want to launch the next UberEats, Airbnb, or digital marketplace site? I will get it done properly with beautifully written, compliant code.
  • Building or extending existing plugins and themes, specifically well-coded ones. I love developing for Easy Digital Downloads, Restrict Content Pro, AffiliateWP, WP Simple Pay, LearnDash, and any other well-structured plugin!
  • Pulling apart your site and finding areas where improvements can be made. This includes your design, business model, and backend code.

Regardless of the industry you work in, I can help you build (or tweak) what you need to achieve your business goals. Being a part of Codeable allows me to take on interesting and fun projects from a wide variety of people and satisfies my passion for problem-solving. I enjoy writing API integrations, complex automations, and much more.

WordPress is my favourite CMS to use due to its rich ecosystem of plugins, as well as its flexibility for quickly testing out different MVPs and business models.

Having a passion for well-written plugins, I love building add-ons for Sandhills Development products — especially Easy Digital Downloads, Restrict Content Pro, AffiliateWP, Sugar Calandar, and WP Simple Pay.

Here are some testimonials from existing clients that I’ve worked for:

“Very fast and pleasant transaction creating a custom EDD plugin! Other consultants quoted 10x more time for the same job, while David said he will do it in 1 day. But he literally did it in 1 hour! Great to deal with a professional, breath of fresh air!” — Konstantin Youdenko

“We hired David to do a massive upgrade to our site because we needed to move beyond our MVP style marketplace. It required months of work — and a lot of interesting problems had to be solved along the way. This included more than just functionality, as we also wanted to unify our branding and make everything more cohesive.

We’re now running a fast, secure, and profitable marketplace — all built on WordPress and Easy Digital Downloads.

In the end, David delivered a product that has given our customers a much better buying experience, and we’re already starting to see a higher conversion rate thanks to the new site!.” – Morten Jaeger

“Beyond incredible technical skill, David has an uncanny ability to capture the vision for a website and translate it into efficient and optimised design. My marketplace website had outgrown it’s limited initial launch format/design. Key priorities were to achieve improved product filtering, search results and dynamic elements for user accounts, reviews and to integrate an affiliate program. After struggling for more than 6 months to create a roadmap for these elements, David brought all this functionality forward in less than 2 weeks. My background involves numerous major technology implementations and often these are inhibited by poor communication or disconnect between design and desired functionality. This project was seamless. Impeccable communication and results. The final product exceeded my expectations.” – Megan Boitano

“David has the rare ability to translate business requirements into beautifully architected, scalable solutions. He anticipates gaps and solves for them before you even need to think about it and delivered his well-written code with intuitive frontend user experience. I’ve worked with countless developers across many platforms over the last 20 years and David easily rises to the very top. His vast knowledge of WordPress, specifically Sandhills plugins (Easy Digital Downloads, Restrict Content Pro, AffiliateWP, etc), made him the obvious choice for our custom development. I would recommend David in a heartbeat to any one looking for custom development done right.” — Kenny Petrowski

“After five months of dealing with big talking web developers with little substance I was ready to throw in the towel on my project until I met David. He was the first honest person who knew exactly what he was talking about and was not trying to rob me by selling me things I did not need. David’s communication was immediate & thorough and I was never left wondering the status of the project. When the project was completed I was ecstatic! Not only did he read my mind to create my vision of the project, he added functionality I never would have thought of. It is obvious he knows the software inside and out. I honestly can’t say enough nice things about David and the quality of the work he delivered – I would not have been able to bring this project to fruition without him!” – Bernice O’Hanlon

“David was extremely pleasant to work with on our most recent project together. His deep knowledge of Easy Digital Downloads allows him to work quickly while thinking ahead to avoid potential issues and to develop efficiently and effectively. Without a doubt, we’ll be turning to David again for any custom EDD development that we may need in the future.” – Casey Fulgenzi

“I needed an ecommerce problem solved quick, and David came to my rescue. His work was fast, insightful, and incredibly effective.” — Dustin W. Stout

“I can’t say enough how much I appreciate David’s attention to detail, attentiveness, and knowledge on revamping my website. He grasped what I had in mind and even took to a step further.” — Ben Patten

“David’s quality of work is absolutely unbeatable. He brought my digital store to life, providing clean design, bloat-free code, and a secure site that meets all of my needs. I was looking for someone who could reliably guide me through all aspects of starting an Easy Digital Downloads store, and David really came through! He’s a true expert.” — Mandy Jones

Great experience with David, awesome communication, advice and general work. Super pleased with the end result and there's little to fault. Plus agreement to help fix any small bugs/optimise the site at launch post job completion is much appreciated.

Project rating:

I'd like to say a big thanks to David. I've been burnt serval times on the likes of Fiverr, UPWORK and People per hire. They are only interested in a quick buck. I'm a new company looking to set up an automated payment system. Rather than build it, David took the time to analyze my business model and suggested a cost-effective alternative. David also gave tips for my website. I'd highly recommend using David if you want quality service. Thanks David.

Project rating:

David is not only a great coder that materialises your dream. It helps you shape it and find the tools to make it real. We find him because we needed a simple 3rd party plugin customisation. He is technically skilled, and with a great understanding of e-commerce, which inspired great confidence to us. He finally lead us to create our own custom website from scratch. We couldn't be happier with the decision!

David is exemplary at both technical work and communication. His ability to grasp not just the what needs done, but why (and how) it fits into the larger picture of my ecommerce site is so valuable. On this project, David kept me informed each step of the way and it was a pleasure to have his expertise as always.
