Web Designer and Developer
I am a professional web designer and developer specializing in and all things WordPress.
Over the past ten years I have built well over 400 WordPress sites for clients and still maintain many of them. I serve clients in North America, Europe and Australia.
I go out of my way to make it easy to work with me and if you want to do some basics yourself, I will do what I can to make that easy as well.
I love interacting with tech savvy people at all levels and coaching non-technical people to get into managing their own sites.
I have experience in a wide variety of themes, Avada, Astra, Divi, Flatsome and more. This includes Theme Builders such as Elementor, JSComposer and theme specific page builders.
I also have experience with a multitude of plugins and know the good from the bad. In depth experience includes WooCommerce, LMS, Toolset and ACF, Gravity Forms, Memberships and many others.
As a rule I also take care of site performance, site security, regular updates and backups. I have cleaned sites from malware and have improved site performance on many sites.
I live in South Africa and work nights which means I am available 7 days a week, normally late in my day but during American daylight hours.
By arrangement, I am available for Zoom or other voice conversations at any ANY time.
I consider myself to be a well-rounded professional WordPress developer and strive to deliver excellent service at all times.
