About

I’m a full-stack web developer and a designer. I specialize in WordPress development – specifically medium scale projects that require intricate solutions, custom themes/plugins, and various third party API integrations. I’m passionate about modern design: giving front end users the best experiences, as well intuitive & easy to use backend management for website owners.

My core skills include:

Wordpress Development Website Design PHP MySQL HTML5 CSS3 jQuery Brand Design

My other abilities and toolsets are:

LESSCSS Unix+Apache Servers .htaccess shell Javascript CRON WP-CLI JSON/REST API Google APIs Client Libraries oAuth 2.0

And I also spend my days dealing with and doing:

Responsive Sites HIDPI Support LetsEncrypt SSL AMP Support DNS Management CDN Setup PageSpeed Optimization Knowledge Graph Integration Schema.org Tags AWS Setup Twitter Cards Integration Google Analytics Base SEO Work

tl;dr: For over a decade I’ve been building great websites, from ideas/designs, to launch/optimization, and every single thing in between.


Portfolio: I’ve housed some of my work for brand+web design, and web development in dribbble-like design shots on this site. However, due to ownership rights I’m not able to display the best of my work publicly. If you’d like to privately unlock my portfolio, please email me and I’d be happy to share it with you.


Personally: I’m a father and a husband, living in a small town in BC Canada. For the last 6 years I’ve been the Senior Designer/Developer at ROI Media Works, and love working and growing my skills there. I listen to Chill music all day long and my favourite past time is reading on my Kindle (which I think is the coolest piece of technology ever).

I’m driven by a constant need to create, build, restore, or fix – wether it be around the house, coding, or designing – for a living, or just for fun. I’m a software/tech enthusiast, I always get excited about new services, Apps, and tools – you can checkout which software and hardware I use here.
