Hire Me

WordPress Developer Tessa KrieselI am a self-taught, kick-ass developer that has been writing code for over 10 years with experience in WordPress, Drupal & Joomla, as well as over 50 other content management systems and development platforms. Although I am most skilled at theming & front end development, I am experienced in all things relating to development. I have a knack for business processes, organization, speaking to clients and project management, which makes me an extra special kind of developer. Not your average WordPress Developer.

How I Can Help

I want to be your ally. We all need that one person that we can go to when we just can’t figure something out. Let me be that person for you.


Do you have a new developer joining your team or someone who wants to learn more about WordPress coding? I can help mentor your team members on specific topics or overall coding, depending on what you need.


As a freelancer or an owner of a small agency, you likely know most of the things you need to know to use WordPress, but occasionally have a development question or two, I can help with your development consulting and minor code fixes. We can also talk through requests for proposals and I can recommend ways to approach development and functionality.

Tech Support

When working on projects, we occasionally have various coding tasks, that for whatever reason, we are not able to solve. I can help with same-day to next-day turnarounds on light technical issues that are stopping you from moving forward with your project.


Bring me in to help with development on your next project. I can help with development strategy, theme development, plugin development or all of the above.
