I’ve been a full-time freelance developer for the past 9 years, specialising in WordPress for the past 7 or so. I’ve been involved in thousands of development projects.

Design to WordPress

My speciality is taking designs and building secure, lightweight, easy to edit custom themes.

Bug Fixes

You know the ones – simple if only you knew where to look! There’s very little I haven’t seen or done before and I can knock these over quickly and efficiently.

Adding Functionality and Bridging Gaps

These are my favourite! Creating mini-plugins to add functionality to existing themes & plugins; my years of in-depth WP experience makes these tasks only a matter of hours to complete. Common tasks are adding further functionality to existing plugins, intertwining multiple plugins so they’ll communicate nicely, adding export and automated systems and all sorts of varied tasks.

Other expertise I offer includes:
– WooCommerce integration
– Optimising sites for maximum performance
– Safely migrating sites to a new server
– Site and code reviews

First time using Matthew and we were not disappointed. We hired him for consultancy but he went above and beyond and just did the work him self, while staying in frequent contact with us. Clear communication and solid competency. Will definitely use again!

Exceeded my expectations of what I thought would even be possible with the site. Was open to adding small additional problems as they popped up, and maintained constant contact throughout the entire project. Will definitely be hiring Matt again for future work.

Matthew was a pleasure to work with and incredibly knowledgeable about the capabilities of Gravity Forms... so much so that we were able to rethink our workflow and end up with a smoother/better workflow all together.
