Bio

I build maintain and optimise high-performance webservers and super-fast WordPress websites. Nothing else. That’s it. No distractions. Nothing to steal my focus. No kidding myself I can be good at everything. No trying to conquer the whole damn world. I just do my very best to conquer my little bit of it.

Interests

conversion rate optimisation, CRO, search engine optimisation, SEO, website development, internet marketing, IM, search engine marketing, SEM

WordPress Origin Story

I’ve always believed things don’t have to be the way they are. They are what we make them. But the big problem for most WordPress users, these days, is that simply having a WordPress website is not enough. Most site owners don’t possess the necessary skill set to make it successful. Web agencies design for beauty, paying little more than lip service toward the goals of the business and its customers. While top companies carry out thousands of optimisation experiments on their websites every day. My goal is to level the playing field and help small firms grow their business online, in ways they can’t imagine.
