Hello! My name is Thomas Griffin and I have been developing websites and web applications exclusively with WordPress for the past 3 years. In that time, I have created over 100 custom themes and plugins for clients all over the globe. I’ve contributed to WordPress core, spoken at WordCamps around the US and have even made some pretty cool WordPress products. I’m an all-around WordPress fanatic who loves solving problems.
Themes and Plugins
That’s right – you heard me correctly. I’ve created over 100 custom WordPress themes and plugins in my time developing with WordPress. These range from small business websites to corporate applications to external API integrations with companies like Salesforce.
I love creating innovative solutions to ever-present problems, and doing it in a way that is secure, efficient and sustainable for the future.
I’ve contributed and had patches committed to WordPress core. What does this mean? It means that I am actively studying and helping make WordPress a better software platform for users all over the world.
By choosing me as your WordPress developer, you get the experience and expertise of someone who has studied and even helped create the software that powers (or will soon power!) your website.
WordCamps are informal conferences centered around WordPress. They include different tracks pertaining to different facets of the WordPress world, including tracks for beginners, basic users, power users, developers, business owners using WordPress, etc. All of my talks given have been centered around WordPress development.
- WordCamp Atlanta 2012 – Got Awesome Theme Functionality? It Probably Needs a Plugin
- WordCamp Chicago 2012 and WordCamp Raleigh 2012 – Using AJAX In Your Plugins (The Right Way)
I also attend local WordPress meetups to meet with local WordPress talent to talk and speak about a wide variety of topics in WordPress.
Not only do I consult and develop awesome WordPress things for clients, I also have built and sell some for myself.
Soliloquy is the best responsive WordPress slider plugin. Period. It is incredible fast, efficient, SEO friendly and user friendly. It takes advantage of core WordPress APIs and functions to make manage your image sliders an absolute breeze.
I also sell Curtail, a Genesis child theme that is super modern and minimalistic in its style. It’s got 8 color options and comes stock with Soliloquy for the slider. How awesome is that!
TGM Plugin Activation is an incredibly useful PHP library for WordPress that allows you to track and manage plugin/theme dependencies for WordPress. It gives users an easy way to install require and recommend plugins for themes and/or other plugins.
What Does All of This Mean to You?
It means that you can rest assured knowing that when you hire me as your expert WordPress developer, you are getting some of the best and most well respected talent in the WordPress industry.
So are you ready to move forward with your next WordPress project? I’m here to help!
