Hi there!

I’m currently busy with other projects and not actively seeking new work, but if we’ve worked together in the past and you need small tweak or update, please feel free to reach out.

My name is Galen Gidman. Thanks for visiting my profile page!

I’ve spent the past 8 years building WordPress websites for people just like you. Whether you’re looking for a simple site to showcase your small business or product, a blog to share your ideas with the world, or a large-scale, custom implementation for your business or church, I have the experience and know-how to walk you through every step of the journey.

I believe in treating people the way I want to be treated, specifically:

  1. Delivering a solution that meets and exceeds your expectations
  2. Communicating thoroughly and often
  3. Getting the work done on or ahead of schedule

I have wide-ranging abilities within the WordPress landscape. I’ve built and maintained dozens of sites for everyone from small businesses, multi-million-dollar tech companies, to large, multi-campus churches. Wherever you may fall on that spectrum, I’d be happy to help.

I also enjoy building my own WordPress plugins. My first two received several thousand installs before being sold, but I’m most proud of my current project, HelpPress — a knowledge base plugin that’s compatible with any theme, right out of the box.


“I’ve worked with Galen on dozens of projects over the last few years. He is a true professional in all regards. One of his greatest strengths is his ability to take the lead and work efficiently without a ton of direction. He has a good eye for design and his development chops are second to none.”
— Vin Thomas

“Galen is a gifted developer. He’s reliable, consistent, trustworthy, and thoughtful. I know when I hand something off to Galen it will get done the right way, and on time. I can spend my time making our work better rather than worry about managing another person.”
— Brian Kauffman
