LOLcat! I'm a New Zealand based WordPress Developer. I build lightning fast, top ranking sites that are secure and easy to manage.
WordPress is the ideal platform for blogging, marketing, and e-commerce. The low stack requirements, open source community and plugin marketplace are great time and money savers.
I have been developing with WordPress and WooCommerce since 2011, and starting 2018 I build themes exclusively with Beans and Carbon Fields (switching soon to custom Gutenberg blocks). My builds include minimal unused JS or CSS and I keep plugin usage to a minimum for speed and security. Recently I have been working with external subscription services (ChargeBee and Recurly) combined with Hubspot and Mailchimp marketing automation.
I recently completed my undergrad in Computer Science and am now a third through my MSc at Otago University. I'm interested in deep + reinforcement learning, and information retrieval. Away from the terminal, I guzzling coffee, pulling deadlifts, listening to podcasts, and refreshing Elon's Twitter feed
Developed with Beans and carbon fields. Reduced the previous build request count by over 75%, and removed over 20 plugins whilst improving admin usability. I'm using Varnish to serve upwards of 80% of requests from a quick AF reverse proxy.
