Merry Christmas! I'm a Dunedin based Wordpress Consultant and Developer. I build lightning fast, top ranking sites that are secure and easy to manage.

WordPress is the ideal platform for content creators, marketers, and e-commerce. The low stack requirements and out of the box functionalities are great time and money savers

I have been developing with WordPress and WooCommerce since 2011, and for the last year develop exclusively with Beans and Carbon Fields. My builds include minimal plugins and bloat for maximal speed, maintainability and security. Recently I have been integrating external subscription services (ChargeBee and Recurly) and marketing automation (Hubspot and Mailchimp) and playing with the idea of Wordpress as a headless CMS.

Outside of Wordpress I'm moving into full stack Javascript development, JAMStack methodologies and using React for single page applications and static site generation. I am a co-founder of and in 2018 I completed my Graduate Diploma and postgraduate coursework in Computer Science at Otago University.
