Background

I’ve been a web designer/developer since the early 1990’s. In that time I’ve developed with many different platforms but none come close to joy I find in developing with WordPress! For the past seven years I’ve developed almost exclusively in WordPress — everything from “Mom & Pop” sites to large enterprise-wide multisites.

I take pride in providing solutions that satisfy client wants and needs, in both the near- and long-term. I take the time to learn your business goals and how your projects fit into those goals.

I am an active Core Contributor and had the honor to be co-lead for the WordPress 4.9.8 release.

Skills

  • Custom plugin/theme development
  • Existing plugin/theme customization
  • Custom post types
  • Site migration
  • Ongoing site maintanence
  • Information organization
  • Training on how to use the solutions I provide

Portfolio

Here is a small sample of my previous work.

Kaiser Permanente Southern California

Kaiser Permanente Southern California

Kaiser Permanente is one of the US’s largest not-for-profit health plans, with 12.2 million members served by 22,000 physcians in 39 hospitals and 684 medical offices nation wide (4.5 million members, 6000 physicians, 20 hospitals and 191 medical offices in Southern California alone) and a 2017 operating budget of $72.7 billion USD.

Kaiser Permenente Southern California is the main communications channel for Kaiser members in Southern California.

The site is a multisite, with separate sites for each “service area” within the region, as well as a number of “satellite” sites for various services Kaiser offers; it utilizes a number of custom plugins (defining approximately 30 custom post types) and a custom theme, with separate child themes for each sub-site in the multisite.

Paul is a consummate professional and back-end wizard. He was adept at identifying the source of our problem and working with external parties to resolve it quickly. Throughout, he communicated his progress and needs (like credentials). His thoroughness showed each step of the way from investigation, to repair, to cleanup. As we were under a tight timeline, it was gigantic a relief to have a pro like Paul on the job. If we have further needs, we'll do all we can to secure Paul again. Thanks to Codeable for putting us in touch with him! This is such a cool platform.
