Before starting my current full-time position with Automattic, I was a freelance web developer. While I no longer take on new projects; I have a number of excellent colleagues who I very happily recommend. This list isn’t exhaustive as there are hundreds of great WordPress & web professionals out there, but these are the folks that I have either worked with, met with in person or happen to know are extra good.
