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

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.
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.
You’re just about finished reading my profile now. Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a little about me.
Hopefully after reading this page it’s clear to you that I do what I love, and I love what I do. So if you choose to work with me, I will do everything in my power to exceed your expectations and give you a result that you will be proud to show off!
Mike was excellent at dealing with our website speed optimisation project. He responded quickly, gave full and detailed information, explained everything well and finished the job by giving several recommendations for improving things further. The job was smooth and Mike very helpful. Will use again.
Mike was such a pleasure to work with and so knowledgeable! He kept me in the loop at all times and was super patient and flexible. Even before we started the project, he took the time to thoroughly understand the scope of my project before sending me a quote. I'm super happy and look forward to a continued partnership with Mike! Thanks for everything Mike!
I was VERY happy with the service provided by Mike. He was quick to help me with my issues and got my site to a super fast speed! Thanks, Mike!
Mike was able to complete the task as needed and continues to do good work. He works fast and is honest with the amount of hours needed to complete the task.
Mike did a fantastic job bringing our new re-design to life! Super grateful for his experience and expertise to make a pixel-perfect site that's lightweight, simple to update, and optimized for mobile :) Thank you Mike for all your help and looking forward to working on Phase 2 with you!
Mike did a good job overall. He was willing to work with me and was able to tweak my site to my specifications.
Despite the 5-time zone difference in our schedules, Mike has been able to accomplish a lot for us, while simultaneously teaching me about some of the finer points in optimizing WordPress-based websites. Although optimizing websites is an ongoing effort, with Mike's help we were about to achieve quantifiable goals: faster load times, reduction of loading impediments, and a leaner yet more responsive site. If you ever need a specialist in putting a site on a diet and unloading the superfluous content, call Mike Copestake. He's the guy who can accomplish it.
As is often the case with Codeable experts, they respond immediately regardless of the time zone. I am in NY but Mike was in the UK, GM+4, but despite the time difference he kept me informed regularly, established a plan, and discussed by concerns before he initiated any work. This is an important ingredient to any successful collaboration for a project like the one we worked on together. Meanwhile, I kept Mike informed about the changing circumstances on my end and he adjusted accordingly. I can't thank him enough for the results he obtained in speeding up our site and avoiding the conditions that led to my having to contact Codeable in the first place!
FAST, BRILLIANT, EASY TO WORK WITH!!!
Mike is professional, attentive, and great at what he does. He helps me every time I need something. What I love best is the feeling that he really cares about me and my site and getting me to a place where I feel good about the site. Thank you Mike!!
Great. Mike goes above and beyond with his communication and thorough work. I'm in good hands and will use his services again.
