while( innovating ) return "success";

I have over 8 years of custom full-stack WordPress experience in building scalable, flexible, and efficient applications. I consider myself a ‘WordPress Architect’. The process of leading a project from start to end, and building the perfect balance between design, development, and UX. Working with a team, and getting everyone’s input on ideas is critical to the success of any project. What you build must be crafted in a way that sustains flexibility over time, but has the control a client and developer needs. Here’s a few things I pride myself in:

  • Enterprise-level multilingual applications.
  • Multi-network setup and custom setting APIs.
  • WordPress CDN and caching experience including Memcached and APC.
  • eCommerce experience with custom payment gateways.
  • Custom plugin development solutions including content aggregation.
  • Custom extensions for page-builders including Visual Composer.
  • Capability management and custom publishing workflows.
  • WordPress training and mentoring.
