A Senior WordPress Specialist with 20 years of coding experience including WordPress VIP projects, my aim is always to pro-actively deliver complete, efficient solutions, that create an experience that delights and rewards the user whilst effectively meeting business needs.

• WordPress Admin interface customization
• WordPress VIP

There are always some issue in the beta plugin he provide that need me to find the issue and tell him. But he always solve the issues reasonably and give me a good plugin at end.
