About Me

Location: South Florida
Marriage Status: Happy
Children: Three


I’ve had to wear a number of hats in recent years… Application Developer, Front End Developer, Backend Programmer, Database Administrator, and Project Manager in a wide variety of web sites, startups and projects.

I’m particularly interested and focused on startup projects and anything WordPress/BuddyPress related (which at this time is majority of my work). Of course, i’m always interested in building cutting edge interactive applications, especially if they use WordPress. I love to push WordPress and BuddyPress to the limit. I prefer to code with CodeIgnitor for stand-alone PHP applications.

Spoken at past WordCamps, conferences, meetups, BarCamps, and Refresh events. I don’t speak often, but try to at least speak a few times a year.

Privileged to be a founding member of WordCamp Miami and have organized WordCamp Miami 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.


Much of my work is done through agencies, not necessarily directly with the client.
Client controlled sites might not be the way that i left them.

Note: With my site revised in April 2013, i'm putting up portfolio items slowly. Ping me if you want to see a bigger list.

Speaker Slide Showdown?

David Bisset

Blog, WordCamps

So last week there was a discussion on Twitter regarding speaker’s submitting slides for review before that speaker gives a presentation at the WordCamp.

Contact Me

If you are contacting me to request a quote, here are tips to ensure that I might be a good fit and respond to your request: (1) My minimum project budget is $2K USD; Small projects are billed hourly, but i rarely do this work these days (2) The more information and details, the better i’ll be able to give feedback and an official quote; (3) I do not sign non-competes; (4) I get so many requests, it’s impossible for me to have calls or in-depth emails with everyone – for promising projects i’m happy to provide a brief complementary time for a phone or Skype call.


If i cannot help you, i’ll try to refer you to another available developer or other locations where you can locate a developer.
