Biography

Hi! I have been designing and developing websites since 1999, and since 2007 I have increasingly worked with the WordPress content management system, developing complete sites based on totally custom themes. I offer website design and development services via my ZigPress agency and also offer a complete WordPress website support and maintenance package called ZigCare.

I have worked with large and small clients in Malta, the UK, mainland Europe and the USA, and have also held senior roles in technology and media companies. I bring a wide range of experience to the table, and can provide professional quality solutions while remaining more flexible and quicker to respond than a larger agency. Having said that, I’m equally at home working as a subcontractor for an agency or directly with clients.

In 2013 a custom web application I developed for a leading Maltese shipping company won “Best B2B Application” at the Malta Communications Authority eBusiness Awards.

I have also created a number of free, open source WordPress plugins that are available in the WordPress plugin repository.
