Hi! I'm Gilbert. A Software Engineer living and working in the North of Scotland.
I currently work as a Web Developer for Delicious Brains and run my own one-man web development studio Dev7studios. I'm a husband, father, christian, drummer and petrol head.
- Studied Software Engineering at the University of Strathclyde (2005 - 2010)
- Graduate Software Engineer at Aquidata Excel (2009 - 2011)
- Web Developer at ThemeZilla (2011 - 2014)
- Senior Software Engineer at Dunked (2013 - 2015)
- Software Engineer at Delicious Brains (2015 - present)
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.
