We are a web consultancy based in Southern Ontario, Canada, serving both a local and an international client base.
We focus on WordPress, specializing in creating highly performant, scalable, accessible and SEO friendly code (plugins, themes and WordPress based applications) for large WordPress sites that are often multi-site, multi-language, VIP and/or e-commerce.
I am a senior WordPress full stack developer. I discovered WordPress in 2006 when asked to explore the use of collaborative tools internally for a multi-national corporation, setting up a 200+ multi-blog site using WPMU on IIS7. As part of this project, I created my first plugin, Author Avatars (https://wordpress.org/plugins/author-avatars/), which now has 9,000+ active installs.
From this point on, the community, the flexibility and the momentum of WordPress has made it the platform of choice for my work.
I have made core commits in 3.9, 4.0, 4.2, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7,4.8 and 4.9 and continue to support a growing list of plugins .
My latest contribution:

It has always been important to me to contribute to the wider WordPress community. I currently lead a virtual monthly meetup, Virtual Contrib2Core ; am co-organizer for a local WordPress Meetup and speak at WordCamps whenever I can.
I am an experienced project leader, administrator, writer, catalyst and connector. I bring to our business a strong background in operations management and administration, together with experience in writing, editing and content management.
My main role is to maintain an overview and provide ‘the oil in that keeps the wheels turning’. I aim to ensure that all the things that need to happen beyond the coding happen smoothly and in a timely manner.
Although I do not consider myself a web developer, I have built and maintained web sites within wider roles since 1998 and have used WordPress since 2009. I am also a co-organizer for the local WordPress Meetup and a regular attendee at WordCamps.
It’s rare to meet a WordPress developer as talented, ambitious, and dedicated as Paul. . . When we have another WordPress build, I’d work with Paul again.
