Why Choose Steve

Finding a plugin that does exactly what you want can be challenging.  I can build you a plugin to suit your needs perfectly.  If you need to integrate with other vendors, no problem, I'm here to help with that as well.  Existing plugins no longer working?  I can tweak them to work with the latest version of WordPress.

Development

I can add new functionality to your website by developing a custom WordPress plugin specifically to suit your needs.

Customization

Using an existing plugin that doesn’t function quite the way you want?  I can customize it using standard WordPress techniques that insure compatibility.

Integration

Need to integrate an external service such as Mailchimp or Paypal?   I can make the magic happen in a seamless and secure way.

What People Say

{Steve was my very first hire after I joined HotChalk, and I often look back on that choice as the best one I’ve ever made at the company. Steve is a highly-skilled Wordpress developer. He writes thoughtful, elegant code for our custom Wordpress plugins and themes, and I’ve yet to give him a challenge that he couldn’t meet. He is also a great team player, always looking for new opportunities to contribute and happy to mentor more junior developers. All of the buzz-words apply: Steve is customer-focused, quality-driven, self-motivated, a team player and strong communicator, all of those things. But most of all, Steve has been a wonderful collaborator in moments when I have worn a Project Owner hat. He’s willing to push back if something doesn’t make sense to him, and I’ve learned to pay sharp attention to his instincts. He’s ready to brainstorm solutions to complex problems, or to talk through implementation options and make sure we’ve covered all of the bases. He’s open to feedback, and willing to give it in a thoughtful and supportive way when asked. I look forward to every opportunity I get to work with Steve, and would not hesitate to recommend him to any organization or position that fits his interests and skills.

{When we approached Steven to help us create the First Friday Artist Registry, he immediately understood our goals and helped us expand and refine them, ultimately executing an elegant interface and an invaluable resource. Steven’s approach to problem-solving and his excellent ability to communicate complex ideas has made working with him a pleasure and a valuable educational experience.

{I have worked with Steve for over 6 years and he is one of the best all-around teammates I have ever worked with. Aside from being co-workers, he has also been an amazing mentor to me as I changed career paths from web design to web development. On top of helping me learn different coding concepts, he is always willing to give me feedback on my code and shows an enormous amount of patience throughout the process. No matter how many projects he has on his plate, he is always willing to lend a hand when one is needed. Knowing Steve is part of the team, means knowing a project will be completed on-time and with the highest quality of work. He is, without a doubt, one of the best web developers I have ever worked with, and his skills stretch across so many different areas: from Wordpress and plugins to JS, APIs, PHP, and everything in between. In the 6 years I have worked with him, I have never seen him come across a coding problem he couldn't solve. Any organization would be lucky to have him on board, and I have been lucky to call him a co-worker, mentor, and friend.
