Richard Grandi

Hello. I'm a WordPress developer.

My name is Richard Grandi, and I'm based in Oxfordshire.

About Me

I'm a self-taught developer with a few years experience in custom-built WordPress websites at a leading digital agency in central Oxford.

In my previous life, I was a trained and experienced Hospitality professional with a strong grounding in business management and marketing, but after completing my university degree and taking a step back from hospitality after a year in industry, my eyes were opened to my teenage passion of building websites.

I spent a year whilst taking care of my newborn son re-learning how to develop websites, incorporating new skills such as SASS, jQuery and Object Oriented PHP to my skillset whilst building up a small portfolio of work that would enable me to get my first job in the digital sector.

In August 2015, I was able to secure a temporary position within an Oxford agency as a junior developer, and this was the beginning of my journey in to the world of WordPress. Two months later, I was offered a permanent position as a developer. In the two years since, I have gone from strength to strength and now have a wide variety of skills to call upon to solve any problem.

I am now the lead technical developer for the organisation and my clear desire to innovate and learn new technologies in the digital ecosystem has been clear - I want to push the boundaries, and have an insatiable appetite for learning.
