I’ve been working with WordPress for over a decade. Through the years, I’ve been a WordPress theme reviewer, theme contributor, plugin developer and a WordCamp speaker & volunteer.

Outside WordPress, I’ve worked in all roles in the software development cycle. As a Principal Engineer in MTN, Africa’s largest telecom, I led teams designing, building and supporting custom & vendor applications for over 10 million customers. I built the core of the telecom’s loyalty platform that grew to support 4 million customers.

As a senior Engineer at Andela, a company building world-class software for IBM, Microsoft and other US tech companies, I mentored the next generation of global tech leaders and also, designed & built software for the company’s off-shore clients.

I’m big on finding an appropriate solution for the need at hand and speaking human – not tech – to ensure we are all on the same page as we work together to bring that solution to life. I’m also quite big on following best engineering practices. Over the years, these practices have proved themselves invaluable to not just making the teams I’m a part of effective but also ensuring that projects have great, lasting impact.

I look forward to working with you to bring your project to life.

Peter is a good communicator but more importantly has the requisite techinical skills required to complete the task. We are very happy with the outcome of our project.

I gave Peter a week to finish this task and he did in less than an hour! Simply perfect, could not have been better. Everything is working nice and smooth. I will come back to you when I need support again.

Peter put up with my less than perfect explanations of what I needed and offered better solutions that I initially thought of.

Having to communicate via the workroom was not efficient for those of us who do not do it regularly. Good work on the project.

While overall experience was good, Peter missed the first time we set to talk/meet, which allowed me time to essentially solve the issue myself. I'm still not exactly sure what I paid for because all he seems to have done is looked through our site and check querys.

Because he's the BEST. My company's new website was experiencing some very strange (to me) behavior. I'm a software engineer but I have hardly any experience with PHP and GravityForm's API so I couldn't make heads or tails of it. He knew what was going on the moment he looked at my triggering function. Had me back up and running (in production) in no time. Thank you for helping me save face in front of my clients!
