I’ve been a full-time freelance developer for the past 13 years, specialising in WordPress for the past 10 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

All I can say about Matthew is WOW. I have only done a few jobs on Codeable, but he has rapidly become my "go to guy". I have been very impressed with both his quality of work AND his timeliness in accomplishing the job. Thanks again Matthew!!

He's very knowledgable about site speed and optimization needs. Also, very quick to respond, even with us being on different continents. He took the time to chat with my publisher about what we can do to help speed up my site. I really appreciated his help and will be returning for future site needs.

Matthew is a force of nature. I love working with him. He's smart and transparent and knows his sh*t.

Matthew was amazing, not only did he help me make the changes to my site that I needed, he helped me create, fix, and add many more things! He even recommended better ways to do a lot of things I had wanted. Everything was incredibly quickly implemented and I couldn't be happier or more impressed with his work. I would recommend and will be back if I need anything else he can help me with!

Matthew troubleshot the issue and found a solution in a very reasonable timeframe. This was a job that other developers had attempted but couldn't solve.
