Bio/Description

I’m a front-end web designer/developer. After some years working with HTML, CSS and jQuery, I’ve discovered the awesomeness of WordPress theme development and customization. The more I learn the more I feel I need to dive into this wonderful software.

I currently write on WPThemeMakeover.com, where I blog about my passion: how to customize free HTML templates and WordPress themes.

WordPress Origin Story

I don’t think my WordPress story is very original. Working in the web industry it’s only natural to come across some website that needs to be built using WordPress. Front-end web development being my specialty, I soon found my way into theme building and customization and got totally fascinated by it.
