Biography

I am the co-founder of WordPress. I started it in 2003 with Matt Mullenweg (now of Automattic Inc.) and have been developing with it ever since. I now run Zed1.com Limited, my web development, training, and consultancy firm that, naturally, specialises in WordPress. I work with a small selection of strategic partners who are some of the best WordPress specialists in the country.

I have worked on all kinds of web sites for my clients including a number of UK government WordPress sites, most notably I developed and maintained the UK Prime Minister’s Number 10 website from 2008-2010. I also developed three sites for the Law Commission and a consultation site for DWP. I have consulted on the Department of Health’s WordPress web site. I also developed and continue to work on the award-winning “I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here” site for my client Gallomanor.

I am a long-term software developer (25+ years), with many programming languages, many disciplines, and many years under my belt, many at the most senior levels. I am a published author and technical editor.
