About Me

My name is Mike, I’m 34 and I live in Lincolnshire in the UK. I’ve been a website designer for 15 years and I’ve used WordPress for over 10 years.

About My Skills

I am most experienced with front end development and love to work in the following areas:

  • WordPress install and config
  • Theme install and customisation
  • Bespoke theme development
  • Plugin installation, configuration and customisation
  • WooCommerce(and extensions) installation and configuration
  • Converting PSD, AI, PNG, etc to WordPress themes
  • Monthly support and maintenance
  • Website fixes and cleanup after hacks
  • …and more

About My Experience

Speed is very important, if a website takes too long to load, visitors get bored and leave. I love squeezing every last bit of performance out of a website, I’ve helped lots of clients improve the speed of their website and reduce size and load time.

I also have a lot of experience with the following products and technologies:


X Theme (and extensions), Avada, Divi and many more


Gravity Forms (and extensions), Contact Form 7, Yoast SEO, WooCommerce (and extensions), Divi Builder, Cornerstone (X Theme Builder), Visual Composer, and many more


HTML, CSS, PHP, SQL, JavaScript/jQuery

About My Clients

La Montañosa Villas

I built a website for Steven’s main business and he was so happy with it that he wanted me to create this second website for him. It was built using OpenRealty and using a lot of custom HTML/CSS/PHP

LN4 Architectural Design

George is an architectural designer. His two WordPress websites were hacked and after invoicing issues with his host his account was terminated with an incomplete backup provided. I restored his websites as they were, cleaned up the hack and then hardened them to prevent it happening again.

Greenstone Financial Planning

A few years ago, I was contacted by Martin, a graphic designer who had designed a website. He supplied Photoshop designs and was very clear that he wanted the final website to match the design exactly, it had to be pixel perfect.

Many more

There are some more examples of websites I’ve designed and built on my personal website (PLNT) including a few custom built WordPress themes, some heavily customised themes and a few OpenRealty websites too.

Mike is amazing, I really value strong communication with anyone who I work with and I was pretty quick to work with Mike because I could see he had great communication skills. I did take a chance to be Mikes first buyer on here, but boy was I glad. He did an incredible job, was extremely responsive and detailed in his approach. The task was quite complex on a website with over 750,000 monthly visits and even though I developed my own website it was quite a bit beyond my level of comprehension but Mike helped me through it all and broke down everything he was doing (although most people probably wouldn't need the nitty grittys, I wanted to understand myself as I have a certain degree of knowledge on the topic). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mike to anyone, and I'd be more than confident that you'll be happy if you hire him too :) 5 stars! Thanks Mike, looking forward to working with you again! :)

I was blown away by the wonderfulness of the job Mike did for me. I feel very happy to have such a professional making my site work better. I am overjoyed about the results of working with him as well as the process. I hope to hire him again in the future so I can make my site what it really should be. More details: First and foremost Mike solved my problem (huge database) in record time and at a very reasonable price (under $200). Second, his communication was top-notch. Third, I felt confident in his process as he let me know how he was going about troubleshooting to identify and fix the problem. Fourth, he did extra checks and updates to make sure that the problem really was fixed. Fifth, I felt like he really cared about the success of my site. What a find!! Thank you Mike.
