I’m a web designer and developer based in San Francisco, California. My focus is on WordPress and custom theme development.
I’ve been a developer for over 15 years. New media and innovative technologies have always been a passion, but never at the expense of the basics: clean design, speed, and usability.
The common thread in much of my work has been design – both visual design and functional design for ease of use.
The future has arrived — it’s just not evenly distributed yet. – William Gibson
I’m releasing a new minimalist WordPress theme for writers and bloggers this summer. The theme name is “Idealist”.
I wanted a clean, simple, lightweight (fast-loading) theme. It is open source and was developed using WordPress best practices. The advantages of this include: security, performance, compatibility, extensibility, and maintenance.
By design, it can be a traditional blog with a sidebar on the right. Or, it may look nothing like a typical blog. The intent was for it to be flexible without too many options. It includes custom format types for images, asides, quotes, and status updates.
I also wanted a theme – and full website – that could easily be maintained by the site owner (or writer, blogger, business owner), if desired.
If you are interested in an early release or to help beta test, please drop me a line!
