This blog is a bit of fun to write about topics that I am interested in.
You’ll find things like….
- WordPress, some code, plugin reviews and general tips
- Mac OS X and iOS
- Music, I play guitar and piano and like to record some original tunes
- Some photography, the landscape and the food type
- And some general techie things
- the odd cheap shots and windows users (well not too much of that but sometimes I can’t resist)
..involved in three WordPress related businesses. Yes my plate is full!
With Clair Gowenlock and Jon Tinberg I co-founded The DMA back in 2008. We have expanded our team over that time to be 8 at last count. The main focus here is building awesome WordPress sites. We also provide managed WordPress hosting for hundreds of happy customers. Check out our portfolio of work here.
AssistantPress.me is all about content and SEO. The service is specifically for WordPress site owners who are looking to super-charge the effectiveness of their online presence. Our platform connects talented writers with businesses looking to improve their websites with regular fresh content that’s SEO optimised.
HelpForWP.com is focused on developing plugins for WordPress. We have around a dozen plugins that we’ve released and maintain. Many are add-ons for Gravity Forms but you can check out what they’re all about here.
For a it more about me and what I like to do, read on.

At the end of the 90s I founded TPP Internet, it has subsequently been bought and sold a couple of times but it still lives on, check them out here tppinternet.com. Around 10 years in the domain name and hosting game in Australia was fun, in fact a roller coaster ride!
Literally taking this business from a garage to the eventual sale to Net Registry in 2008, so along with everything else I know a thing or two about DNS and internet infrastructure.
During this time I sat on the board of auDA (the Australian regulator for the .au name space) for around four years.
Post TPP Internet I started to play with WordPress and soon discovered that it is an incredible platform on which to build both simple and very complex web sites. At The DMA it’s at the very core of what we do. If you’re interested, checkout some of the projects that we’ve done with WordPress here.
I attend WordPress meetups in Sydney as often as I can, in 2014 I was on the organising committee for WordCamp Sydney.
I also contribute to…
After high school I trained as a musician, obviously I didn’t get very far as you’ve not seen me on MTV have you? I still love to play guitar and keyboard, bass and more recently I’ve mastered Garage Band – yes it’s an instrument!
I’m currently working on a project to launch a stock music site to distribute some of the music that I’ve written, more on this when it’s complete.
I fancy myself as a bit of photographer, both with a real camera and plenty taken with my trusty iPhone. If you’ve over all the nerd stuff,take a look at some of my photos.
Enjoy the site!
Oh and by the way, I’m not the German musician, If you’re looking for him he’s over here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Schilling
