Bio

I am an allround WordPress theme builder with a UX background. I hold a masters degree in Human Factors Engineering Psychology and have a big passion for highly usable interfaces, especially websites. I have autodidactically developed my coding over the past six years, and run a solo business to build websites for my clients.

I aim to contribute to WordPress as much as I can, to help make the block editor interface less confusing, and more intuitive, from both perspectives of user and developer.

WordPress Origin Story

It all started 9years ago with my first tinyframework (by mtomas7) website, built on _underscores. This theme framework has greatly helped me to understand core WordPress. Not much later I got accustomed to ACF and created my own CSS framework for it.

I have always been a proponent of WordPress projects that follow standards as much as possible, leveraging custom post types & taxonomies and keeping with WordPress php functions.

Since update 5.8 I made the big step to adopt Gutenberg and blocks and created a fresh starter theme for my projects. This has evolved in a flexible and variable controlled block website fully leveraging theme.json and patterns. It is an exciting time!
