Looking forward to applying my 15+ years of WordPress product experience with the next client. Whether that's developing a product from the ground up, or developing solutions (i.e. SASS, marketing, etc.) to break through those barriers preventing product growth. Let's grow your business together!

== My WP Developer Story. == I started to play/learn/develop with WordPress in 2005, I released a bunch of themes and one of my first plugins named Search Everything. Search Everything ended up being surprisingly popular, and something I am still proud of creating. For the longest time if anyone googled “WordPress Search” it would be at the top, now there are a lot of great solutions but Search Everything still stands out. After that, I engaged in the WordPress community and I was at the very first WordCamp in San Francisco. I learned a lot during this time! The biggest -- I learned was that I could make my hobby a job. == Making money with WordPress. == To kick off my freelance web development “career” I started Sprout Venture in 2008. == Product Projects. == One project I helped develop, release, and manage was Smart eCart (formally Group Buying Site), a Premium WordPress Social E-Commerce plugin that we had developed and supported from ’09 – ’14. This project (amongst others) provided me with some great experience in premium products and made me determined to build Sprout Invoices on my own. 6 Years of Sprout Invoices Sprout Invoices was built because of the many frustrating years using invoicing services Freshbooks and Harvest. With my experience in building and supporting premium WordPress products for clients, I made the decision to start Sprout Apps in mid-2014. In early 2020, I decided it was time for me to stop holding Sprout Invoices back, I was tired. Luckily for myself and the many customers, I found an excellent home at InMotion hosting. Obviously, learned a lot over these years, and this knowledge is what I want to apply to your next project. Providing growth solutions.
I built and managed Sprout Invoices for 6+ years. During that time, I: wrote all the code, designed everything, supported the customer base, built/created marketing strategies, and learned a lot.
My first side project after selling Sprout Invoices uses Laravel and the Stripe API to bring easy payment buttons for any website.
