I’ve been working with WordPress for over a decade, and have helped many clients achieve greater success with their businesses and personal websites. I try to look at every WordPress development or design task and ask the important question, how is this satisfying the end-goals of the business in question? Often that results in suggestions for you on various new ways to improve your site and hopefully your business.

Some happy customers I’ve helped:

Some of my previous clients have been Juno-award winning musician Matthew Good, Automattic (the company behind WordPress, where I helped create the first version of profiles.wordpress.com), the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, Vancouver’s Vision Critical, TicketFly, Roger’s Communications, and many more.

I also co-founded and developed several popular WordPress plugins, including WPtouch (voted the #1 plugin for all of WordPress previously, with over 11 million downloads), WordTwit, and Elevate SEO.

Some of my WordPress achievements:

  • Wrote two of the top three plugins for WordPress (WPtouch and WordTwit), as presented by Matt Mullenweg (the founder of WordPress) at WordCamp San Francisco previously
  • Contributed to WordPress core
  • Organized three international WordCamp events, two in Vancouver, Canada, and one in the ski-resort, Whistler.
  • Spoke at many different WordPress events, ranging from small meetups in Vancouver, large WordCamp events in Portland, Oregon and WordPress conferences in Sydney, Australia

Some of my recent completed projects:

Here is an overview of some of the recent projects I’ve finished:

Elevate SEO

I created and open-sourced a complete SEO plugin for WordPress with additional automation and data reporting features when compared to other plugins such as Yoast.

** Humpback Swims **

I helped a well-known tour group specializing in trips to swim with humpback whales in Tonga. The client provided new design mockups for a complete website overhaul, and I implemented the new mobile-friendly design. I also created a custom booking engine for managing different tour groups spread out over different tour dates, accommodations and amenities. This greatly simplified the management of bookings for the client.

A little more about me

I have a Master’s Degree in Applied Science with a specialization in Electrical and Computer Engineering, which means I have both the training and real-life experience to tackle issues in many different problem spaces. If you need help with a WordPress project, please don’t hesitate to contact me so we can start working together.
