I have a masters degree in computer engineering, and have been working with WordPress for nearly 15 years now. I previously wrote two of the top three plugins for WordPress, and sold them to a venture capital firm. I have extensive development and business experience to help clients achieve success.

I’ve been working with WordPress for over a decade, and have helped many clients achieve greater success with their businesses and personal websites. I try to look at every WordPress development or design task and ask the important question, how is this satisfying the end-goals of the business in question? Often that results in suggestions for you on various new ways to improve your site and hopefully your business. Some of my previous clients have been Juno-award winning musician Matthew Good, Automattic (the company behind WordPress, where I helped create the first version of profiles.wordpress.com), the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, Vancouver’s Vision Critical, TicketFly, Roger’s Communications, and many more. I also co-founded and developed several popular WordPress plugins, including WPtouch (voted the #1 plugin for all of WordPress previously, with over 11 million downloads), WordTwit, and Elevate SEO. Some of my WordPress achievements: * Wrote two of the top three plugins for WordPress (WPtouch and WordTwit), as presented by Matt Mullenweg (the founder of WordPress) at WordCamp San Francisco previously * Contributed to WordPress core * Organized three international WordCamp events, two in Vancouver, Canada, and one in the ski-resort, Whistler. * Spoke at many different WordPress events, ranging from small meetups in Vancouver, large WordCamp events in Portland, Oregon and WordPress conferences in Sydney, Australia

Duane was great to work with. He went above and beyond, making implementations that he knew I would need, but didn't ask for. He made suggestions based off his expertise which were greatly appreciated and accepted. He even got to my project well before anticipated and finished it much faster than I needed it to be completed. I would be more than willing to work with Duane again!
