Mark Howells-Mead curriculum vitæ
I’ve been working in the Web since 1996 and with WordPress since 2003. I’m a passionate developer with an affinity for visual experience, quality, usability and reusable code.
I was asked by a manager to look into “this new internet” over twenty-five years ago, and I’ve based my entire career on it ever since. I’ve been working with WordPress for over 18 years and I pick up tips and ideas from other CMS (like TYPO3) and web technologies all the time, so that I can constantly improve my abilities.
