Hey guys! I’m Matt and I’m a WordPress developer based in sunny Tampa, FL. It wasn’t always like that, though. I’ve been a filmmaker and 3D artist over the last 13 years, and only started doing web design and development in the last 5 years. I’m always learning something new so feel free to have a look around! I’ve got a little bit of everything here from cinematography, 3D animation, web design, and even game design! For other examples of my work, head on over to my portfolio site.

Life as a WordPress Developer in Tampa

Being a WordPress developer in Tampa is awesome because it’s such a cool place to live and work. I’ve been here for 5 years and absolutely love it.

WordPress Developer Background

I became a WordPress developer about 5 years ago when I started creating my own blog. At first I tried default WordPress blogs, then switched to full-on custom HTML sites, and came back to WordPress. During my developer quest, I’ve encountered a ton of problems, and I use this blog to write my solutions to all those problems. If you’re a developer out there, I hope this blog will prove handy to you as it has to me!

3D Animation

It didn’t take long before I realized one of the best things I could do to stand out from the filmmaker crowd would be to become a 3D artist. 3D animation is such a vast industry. The art form applies to countless fields from visual effects, video games, and even the medical field. Being hired full time allowed me to put my 3D skills to good use. It gave me the ability to inject amazing life and creative freedom into nearly any project. The trick was finding the best project suited for 3D animation. I’ve been a 3D artist for over 10 years and still love it today.
