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.

I've used Derrick multiple times now and he has delivered 100% of the time. There isn't a project he hasn't been able to solve. It's quite extraordinary actually, his level of knowledge and ability.
Derrick was really great!. He went above and beyond to give me great advice. He showed that he understood my goals, provided me with information that I can use to move my site forward and how to start my site with a strong foundation. Highly recommended!!
Derrick worked quickly to migrate my website to a new host. He problem solved any issues fast and was easy to communicate with.
Awesome! So incredibly helpful! So knowledgeable, had perfect solutions and tremendous patience with some of my learning curve as to what was needed. So thrilled I found you!
Highly experienced. Very friendly and knowledgeable guy. Will hire him again for my future projects :)
I think the expertise about website speed Derrick has is great. It confirms what his profile is suggesting. Highly recommended.
