About Me

I believe in simplicity, that’s why I choose WordPress.

I come with a solid 11-year track record in the industry. Over the years, I’ve successfully crafted over 100 websites from the ground up and developed numerous WordPress plugins. My expertise has allowed me to assist clients spanning the globe.

With my skillset, I can provide valuable support in various areas, including converting .psd designs into functional themes, creating custom plugins, working with tools like Gravity Forms, WooCommerce, Advanced Custom Fields, and Elementor. I’m also well-versed in addressing typical WordPress issues and excel in tackling security concerns, such as malware removal, site fortification, and providing security consultancy services.

Ultimately, my approach is grounded in a straightforward principle: Keep it simple, yet effective.

Recommended FORMS PLUGIN

Gravity Forms is a user-friendly drag-and-drop WordPress forms plugin that facilitates form creation, custom API integration, and organizing user-submitted data in general, with a friendly and easy-to-use Back End panel. I use it on ALL of my client’s websites (unless otherwise stated) and I even use it on my website 🙂 On top of that, I’ve written a bunch of useful Gravity Forms tutorials with instructions on how to customize them even further, at: https://wp-doin.com/category/gravity-forms/
