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.
HelpForWP.com is focused on developing plugins for WordPress. We have around a dozen plugins that we've released and maintain. We have specialised in Gravity Forms add-ons but also now a variety of niche plugins for WordPress.

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 and 2016 I was on the organising committee for WordCamp Sydney.
I have contributed 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!
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
