I solve WordPress problems.

You: Tired of struggling with WordPress.
Me: Your personal on-call WordPress magician.

I’ve been a web designer & developer for 20 years. I have built lots of sites from scratch, but what I love most is helping people get past those OMG why won’t this just work and I know this can be done but how?? problems. If you find yourself struggling for hours trying to do something that you have a sneaking suspicion someone with the right experience could do much faster, let me help you.

What I can do for you:

  • fix DNS records, redirects, and other server-side stuff
  • modify how your site or plugin works with custom code
  • research and make recommendations for a plugin that will do what you need
  • create a custom shortcode to make it easier to display data in various places on your site
  • figure out why something isn’t working the way you expect and fix it
  • help you create functionality that you need through a combination of plugins and custom code
  • make systems work together properly (like WordPress + Mailchimp)
  • improve how something looks (even if you’re not sure what would help)
  • make your site look or function in this cool way you saw on someone else’s site (as long as it isn’t violating anyone’s copyright)
  • update your WordPress and plugins & fix any compatibility issues that come up
  • tweak your theme to operate or look exactly how you want it

Why work with me?

  • I listen closely to your needs and ask good questions.
  • I work hard and will always be honest with you.
  • I have a broad base of knowledge and experience that helps me solve problems and give useful advice.
  • I have worked the entire technology stack from server-side, database, PHP, to front-end design, which helps me identify precisely where the problem is and the most efficient way to solve it.
  • I understand budgets and can offer multiple options and explain trade-offs.

What does it cost?

  • I charge $150/hour, billed to the minute.
  • If it’s something I’ve done before, I’m pretty fast and can give you an estimate of how long it will take to fix before I start working.
  • If it’s a problem I’m unfamiliar with (like troubleshooting a plugin I haven’t worked with before), I will need to spend some time to assess the problem before I can give an estimate of how long it will take to fix it.
  • You can always set a maximum budget so you don’t have an unexpected expense. I’ll tell you if I can’t do what you need within your budget, and give you some alternatives.

How to get started:

  1. You fill out the form below, explaining your issue.
  2. I will respond with whether I think I’m a good fit to solve your issue (and if not, what I would recommend you do next), and a rough cost estimate if possible.
  3. If you want to proceed, you let me know and I’ll create a simple contract that you can sign electronically.
  4. You send me the relevant login details for WordPress and other logins if needed (like FTP or your hosting control panel).
  5. I get to work.
