Hi! I’m Daniel, a friendly WordPress developer from New Zealand.

I can help you create a custom web site that is super-fast and simple to use.

“Let’s chat!”

Why work with me?

Consider this: as the person who is the developer, web designer, and everything in-between, I represent a single point of contact. There’s never a delay while I check with the person responsible because I am always the person responsible.

I’ve hand-built 100+ custom WordPress web sites across multiple industries, organisations, and small businesses since 2007. Chances are, I’ve already spent long hours thinking about and building something similar to your upcoming project. The hardest part is often working out exactly what it is you need, so why not leverage my WordPress development experience?

Today, I can provide a highly personalised service that used to require a team of people. Take a moment and imagine working on your project with me: you’ve just saved over half the typical cost of working with a creative agency.

I’m always available for a free, no-obligation conversation.

I owe much of what I know to kind people who have taken the time to document approaches and solutions to their issues. So, returning the favour, a mix of how-tos and opinion.
