Date Of Birth:
23rd May 1985
Suite # 315 Park Avenue, Shahrah-e-Faisal.
I am a senior FullStack WordPress Designer/Developer and Consultant, regular Contributor to the community by Open-Source projects, Front-end Fanatic and an accidental photographer. I’ve been using WordPress for over eight years and specialized in custom development.
Coding has always been my second love, family, of course being the first one! I love to create optimized but advanced workflows to produce professional Open Source software. Love to dig into the dirty code, clean and optimize it up to create something beautiful. Wake me up to discuss how to name a thing (functions, arguments, options, anything really). I enjoy developing and designing new WordPress themes or plugins to help people building their blogs or sites and recognizing the potential open source platforms has to offer.
Between my strong passion and love for WordPress, I am also a Front-end fanatic, a regular contributor to the open source platforms and a UI/UX consultant. You can approach me anytime with a query about functions of your site, design, options or any other general question; I will be happy to help until you treat me with a good cup of coffee.
Currently working at MyThemeShop, writing poetry for various projects. I have worked on five plugins and two themes, Rank Math out of which is the most accomplishing.
When not working, I am usually out clicking random pictures; some people tell me I am good at it, or writing a bit of poetry which is yet to come out in the open.

I was hired as a WordPress Consultant to optimize their main website and minimize the website downtime. In my period over there:
– I had cut down the site from 57 plugins to 25.
– Optimize their SQL queries which were taking minutes to run which is the real culprit for the downtime of the website.
– Optimize theme not very well written codebase.
I also develop multiple themes in my period over there. Also, worked on an election micro-site theme which received massive appreciation from media community because of the site’s design which is clean and flawless functionality. The best part is the use of the chart system throughout the system to demonstrate the results.
