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

I'm currently co-founding a new startup called Lemon Squeezy with the guys at Make Lemonade. I also build side projects over at Dev7studios and have a bunch of open-source projects on GitHub. When I'm not at work, I’m a christian, father, husband, drummer and petrol head.

Notable Work

During my career I've done a bunch of cool stuff including running my own WordPress plugin business and building multiple Software as a Service (SaaS) apps. Some of the highlights include:

  • Dev7studios

    Premium WordPress Plugins

    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 called Dev7studios which was sold in 2016.

  • Dunked

    Creative Portfolio Builder

    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 had hit $10k in monthly recurring revenue.

  • SpinupWP

    WordPress Hosting Control Panel

    In 2018 I helped Delicious Brains build a unique WordPress hosting solution called SpinupWP. I was heavily involved in every stage of the project and was responsible for things like UI mockups, architecting the backend in Laravel and the front-end in Vue, ongoing feature development and bug fixes, support, documentation and even hiring.
