Bio/Description

Among a host of other online businesses, I setup and help to run Silicon Dales.

We develop themes, plugins and other WordPress tips and tools for ourselves, our clients and the WP community, as well as utilising several other technologies for business customers.

Silicon Dales are accredited WooExperts, which means we’re officially recognised service providers to the many, many great businesses out there which run WooCommerce.

We host WP sites in the cloud for larger businesses – utilising our own Dedicated Servers (England) and Amazon EC2 (Europe / World-wide) to provide some pretty robust WP experiences!

WordPress Origin Story

I created a business while I was at school / university which required a website to make sales. I installed WordPress for part of it. This part won a few awards. I built more WordPress based websites for my businesses. Eventually, other people came and helped. We got asked to help with WordPress based websites by other businesses. We created a company to service this.
