ajMy name is André and I live on the west coast of Canada in a province called British Columbia. With higher elevations and living in a log house in the country where trees and wildlife make things more interesting and enjoyable, I'm also addicted to iced caramel coffees!

As for my professional background, I’ve been involved with website design for over 14 years. I remember starting off with HTML with CSS, eventually moving into content management systems which lead the way to where I am now. I started with Movable Type (which I miss greatly), then got into Joomla when it first got forked from a CMS called Mambo. With over 12 years of Joomla experience, I then added WordPress to the mix and began the transition from web design to template and theme development.

If you are a WordPress enthusiast and looking for a theme to use on your website right now, you can head over to my other site for WordPress Themes - Rough Pixels.

With that being said, I am here to help anyone wishing to start their own website. I will talk about varying topics from Joomla to WordPress and more. With my blog, I will pass on valuable tips to make the process of building your own website easier for you. I may even offer a few themes and perhaps offer personal custom services to anyone needing help. 

Feel free to check back soon as I continue to build up my website. In the meantime, go ahead and follow me on Twitter or head over to Reddit.
