Noteable Work

Nivo Slider/Dev7studios

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.

Dunked

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.
