I’ve been building websites for fun and profit since 1997, doing everything from working as one of the first online journalists at the BBC; managing the website of one of the UK’s largest airports; to running a large team of web developers and designers for a publishing company in Dubai.
Since going out on my own and discovering WordPress in 2010, I’ve worked as a WordPress developer and consultant helping business owners and agencies launch better websites for their businesses or clients, obsessing about making everything on their websites as easy to manage as possible.
Aside from my client work, I’m the founder of ThemeValet (a WordPress theme setup and support service); write a weekly newsletter on the WordPress Genesis community, and also the co-founder of Lean Themes (a WordPress theme shop).
Outside of WordPress, I was a founder and investor at UK local TV startup YourTV, which was acquired in 2015 by That’s TV. I’m also the co-founder of eSanctuary which sells enterprise software and services in Italy and beyond.
Originally from just outside of London in the UK, I now live in (beautiful) Italy with my (beautiful) wife, (insomniac, but incredible) son, and our small dog, Lola (photo available on request).
