I am a PHP developer, system administrator, and overall jack-of-all-trades engineer. I have over 10 years experience combined in numerous languages, platforms, and technologies.


I have special experience in automation, game development, web hosting/vps hosting/cloud, and web scraping. I have been in the hosting sector for over 5 years and know every major system there is outside of windows.

Specific to WordPress I have special experience with the Pods plugin, W3TC (caching), WP-Rocket (caching and minify), and I prefer using roots.io for building themes from scratch as it uses proper tools like grunt, frameworks like bootstrap, and languages like SASS. I have personally been a contributor and bounty hunter for pods for over 6 months and use it for every site I can.

However even if I do not have extensive or any prior experience to your plugin or theme, I am a very quick learner and will have no issues resolving or building anything you require.

The one thing I unfortunately can not take on is any design work. If you give a mock-up or a visual reference, I can create it in most cases. I can also fix UI’s if there is an issue and do minor changes, and sometimes even major. But the heart of my skill set lies in engineering as a backend engineer despite being a full stack engineer.

What I do is my passion and I take pride in doing it properly. I have been a developer and learning since I was 10 and I have never stopped. I love learning and most importantly I love and thrive on a challenge to learn more.

Fast and precise in delivery. We only had a trouble with him because he was not proactive in asking if any design work was actually needed/required for this feature.
