Bio

An awesome father, so-so husband, and a fabulous WordPress support specialist. From my home office in Accra, Ghana, I help people around the world to build their dream websites to tell their stories, pursue their vision, or make their living… using WordPress.

If you want to discuss a project you think I’d be a good fit for, or just want to have a chat, kindly visit my website and get in touch with me. Thank you.
