Alex J. Gustafson

WordPress Developer

Trusted by 33% of the web for a reason.

My favorite thing about WordPress is it's built to solve actual problems we all face on the web. It's been my go-to software since 2010. I build custom WordPress plugins, themes, and Headless WordPress applications to make it work just right for your needs.

From 2014 to 2017, I worked at Automattic helping thousands of people use WordPress for their business, their project, or their blog. I can help you too.

Between my code and your content, we can make some magic happen.

Full-Stack Developer

Server-side, client-side... I look on the bright side.

In the end, making new stuff requires knowing a little bit of everything. Many developers strive for depth in a speciality to make the most money at Google. I seek a pragmatic breadth of understanding so that you and I can make the next Google.

When my favorite tools don't fit the project, I'm not scared to abandon them in favor of something more appropriate. The best problems have nothing to do with what I know, and everything about what I can figure out.

Whatever you need created, I want to make it the best way possible.

Front-End Developer

It just works. But it needs to work and juggle chainsaws at the same time.

After Automattic, I became a front-end developer at a local web agency. Pretty quickly I learned that every project needs a great deal of polish.

Sass, Gulp, Webpack, React, Gatsby... the front-end space advances everyday. But it's what I breath and I keep getting better. All in the name of making your stuff the coolest stuff whenever possible.
