About Derek

I have invested 650 hours into my business this year, which equates to roughly 750+ Github commits in my repositories and a lot of unpaid work.

I've built a single theme to sell on ThemeForest, or on my personal site, plus I have 6 plugins at various stages of development that are either ready or will be ready to sell as add-on products within the year. I'm a WordPress Core Contributor that is very capable with WordPress and can design well. However, I need an amazing front-end designer to partner with that is familiar with Git, Grunt, Sass, CSS, HTML, & some PHP. I require someone with outstanding design & marketing capabilities that can match my master-level development skills, so be prepared to prove it.

I'm offering an already extensive code base that is unit tested and very stable. I need help finishing the design for the main website, build a theme demo with a WooCommerce shop, market to my email list & social media to build suspense with my existing audience, and develop a business strategy. I have a 750sqft home office to work out of in downtown Beaverton by the library.
