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.

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.

We had some issues this time with the time zone differences making it harder to connect. But when we did connect, Peter was great!

There were a few times when we seemed to talk past each other. It may be my fault, but communication did suffer on occasion. But he didn't seem to get frustrated or try to gloss over it. We eventually got on the same page and moved forward. His patience in those situations is a strength, plus everything else about workin with him was a great experience. Peter's obviously a very knowledgeable and talented developer. He did a great job completing this project and its working great! He even went the extra mile, completing various random minor items that weren't clearly outlined in the original scope. Overall a joy to work with and I highly recommend him to anyone for any project he feels is a good fit for his skillset.

It was great working with Peter! Sometimes our time zone diference was an advantage, and sometimes it contributed to longer periods between replies (from both sides) -- but overall, communication & resposiveness was great! Will definitely work with Peter 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.
