Hi! I’m Gilbert. A Software Engineer living and working in the North of Scotland.

I currently work as a Senior Software Engineer for Delicious Brains building SpinupWP. I also run my own one-man web development studio Dev7studios and squeeze lemons at Make Lemonade. When I'm not at work, I’m a christian, father, husband, drummer and petrol head.

Notable Work


In 2011 I launched the Nivo Slider (a jQuery image slider) which became extremely popular and was downloaded 5+ million times over the course of four years. I later created a WordPress plugin for the Nivo Slider that generated £160k in revenue in the first two years. This kickstarted my WordPress plugin company Dev7studios which was sold in 2016.


In 2013 I helped Orman Clark and the team build and launch Dunked, an online portfolio builder for designers and creatives. I was responsible for building the entire platform from scratch. After just 3 months we had 70,000 registered users and were generating five-figures $/month in revenue.


In 2018 I helped Delicious Brains build a unique WordPress hosting solution called SpinupWP. A service which allows you to spin up your own optimized WordPress server in 10 mins. I was responsible for building the backend API using Laravel and architecting the front-end of the app using Vue.js. I was also responsible for doing the UI mockups that would become the MVP of the product.
