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.

Quick, no nonsense solution. Offered extra help but wasn't pushy about it.
Derrick was very helpful and knowledgable. He gave me recommendations for the future and advice. The communication was timely and clear. Also the turn-around time very fast.
Derrick really knows his way around optimization. We went from a 65% score to a 99%. He is definitely the optimization king.
This project dragged on due to the need to switch hosts in the middle of the project. Derrick was patient and stuck through it!
Quick and reliable! Job done EXACTLY as requested the first time with no issues.
Derrick its very fast, acurate, and professional, happy for his help...very recommended
Derrick helped me with all of my needs, and did it quite efficiently!
Brilliant. Quick, great communication, helped me a ton with transferring my site to a new domains and setting up redirects as well as getting an ssl installed and set up correctly. Highly recommend Derrick.
