Bio

Web designer, and founder of EggCup Web Design. I’ve got a lot of love for WordPress and the amazing community based around it.

I love building custom WordPress themes, and have even ventured into the murky depths of building my own plugins. I have a great deal of experience working with PHP and MySQL in general, having worked as a web developer on a high-profile question and answer website.

WordPress Origin Story

My backstory? Who, me?!

I just got a notification from WordPress.com telling me that I registered my first blog over there 5 years ago to the day. I still haven’t done an awful lot with that blog, I was only experimenting… What I love most about WordPress is how easy it is to customise, and that’s why I quickly moved across to the self-hosted, community project over at WordPress.org.

I originally got into WordPress.org when I was handed the keys to a collection of commercial websites my employer at the time had asked me to manage. I took to the system like a duck to water, and, as a PHP/MySQL developer I soon got into building custom themes and plugins.
