I’ve been creating websites with WordPress since its very first version; firstly as a hobby alongside my day job as co-developer of a newspaper editorial system, and professionally since 2006.

WordPress projects have been the main focus of my professional career since 2008, and I have both kept pace with the system’s development and contributed to the community as a theme and plugin developer, translation editor and WordCamp speaker and co-organizer since 2009. My open-source plugins are currently being used on over 20,000 websites.

I am currently developing and managing website projects, standalone solutions and API integrations at Say Hello, as well as supporting clients directly and providing technical and conceptual support to partner agencies.
