About Me

Hi, I’m Belsien. I’m a Web Developer and Entrepreneur. I Love web technology and think WordPress is a powerful platform to build on. I’ve used WordPress on a daily basis for the last 6 years and built websites with various needs for million dollar brands, individual clients, and my own “passion” projects. I created this blog to help people learn how to create their own websites, show them what is possible with WordPress, and share advice from my own personal experience.

Here’s a little info on my background story and experience:

I have 12+ Years of experience in Web/Internet technology, dating back to launching my first online learning startup at age 17. I have worked as a developer and technology manager with consumer brands and global companies. Using WordPress along with other Open Source and Enterprise technologies, I address various business needs and deliver solutions to complex technical problems.

I have used WordPress since 2006 (from version 2) and am an active member of WordPress community. I help co-organize a few WordPress Meetup Groups (Socal WP Meetup and Santa Monica WP Meetup). I’ve given technical talks on advanced topics including Website Performance Optimization and Tuning at Microsoft HQ in Los Angeles. I’ve also presented at WordCamp LA on the topic of eCommerce solutions with WordPress.

I have a passion for learning, teaching, and helping others to accomplish their own business goals. I work with the local groups in the WordPress community to put on hands-on WordPress Workshops in the Los Angeles area, like this one. My workshops are geared to help a range of people from beginners and small business owners with no development experience, to more advanced users looking to take WordPress further by integrating eCommerce and other features.
