I’m David Bisset. I create robust, meaningful digital experience with WordPress — for everyone from small organizations and startups to Fortune 500 companies.
I’ve been building unique WordPress themes and plugins since WordPress 1.5 (that’s 2005). I’ve been with BuddyPress since the beginning (version 0.1). I’ve been a full-time freelance developer for over a decade.
I’ve had to wear a number of hats in the past… Application Developer, Front End Developer, Backend Programmer, Database Administrator, Project Manager in a wide variety of companies and startups. I have been working as a full-time freelancer and consultant for over a decade. Most of this time as been spent as a WordPress developer in the South Florida / Miami / Ft. Lauderdale area.
I’m particularly interested and focused on startup projects and anything WordPress/BuddyPress related. Of course, i’m always interested in building cutting edge interactive applications, especially if they use WordPress. I love to push WordPress and BuddyPress to the limit. I prefer to code with CodeIgnitor for stand-alone PHP applications.
I am also a conference speaker especially at WordCamps, meetups, BarCamps, and Refresh Miami events. I don’t speak often, but try to at least speak a few times a year. If you can stand the sound of my voice, you can check out what podcasts i’ve been on. (although since about 2017 I’ve been too busy to get back into the podcast world).
Privileged to be a founding member of WordCamp Miami (an annual conference about WordPress that brings in over 750-1000 people each year, one of the largest regional WordCamps in the world) and have been lead organizer or helped organized it from 2010 to 2018. I am also a founding member of the local WordPress meetup and with the help of other volunteers keep it running every month.
I do regular consulting and freelancing work for a number of WordPress news agencies (like Post Status) and companies. I currently work with (Envira Gallery) whose Lite plugin has been downloaded 1,000,000+ times and has 100,000+ installs currently.

I am a father of 3 beautiful daughters and i have a very loving and understanding wife.
