Hi, I’m Drew :-)

I’ve been developing with WordPress for more than 10 years now and have extensive experience working on all types of projects with all types of budgets.

Whether you’re looking for someone who can handle writing custom plugins, full website builds, or even a building a one-off script or diagnosing a slow server, I’ve got you covered.


I’ve served as a WordPress Core Developer from 2013 through 2019, which means I’m one of a handful of people in the world who has worked directly on the WordPress software itself.

In the time since earning my core developer stripes, I gained expert-level knowledge of the ins and outs of how WordPress operates by writing much of the code documentation developers worldwide rely on every day.

As part of my work in the WordPress community, I helped maintain the official WordPress Code Reference and related developer resources, organize meetups and WordCamps, and contribute to the WordPress.org meta team.


It’s because of that high level of knowledge and experience that I’m able to implement elegant solutions for tough-to-solve problems.

After spending three years working for an elite WordPress agency on high scale, high traffic, enterprise-level solutions, I eventually found my true calling a couple of years ago: plugin development.

I currently work for Sandhills Development, LLC., the company behind popular WordPress eCommerce solutions like Easy Digital Downloads, Restrict Content Pro, AffiliateWP, and others.


Don’t let my laundry list of credentials deter you – I like working on projects of all shapes, sizes, and budgets. The real fun is in the challenge, and I do love the challenge! But I also love helping my clients be successful in everything they do by delivering high quality code and service every time.

If you’re looking for a no-nonsense approach to problem solving with easy communication, look me up! You won’t be disappointed :-)

Drew was very professional, communicative, and patient. He made changes to my site exactly how I specified and even added extra functionality to make those change super easy to use.

Some of the cleanest code we've seen. Only one minor issue in the deliverable. Only ONE. And it was extremely minor. I don't remember the last time we had a project where there was only one issue in the first deliverable. Highly recommended.
