I’m Warren, an almost 40-year-old Freelance WordPress developer, website designer, and car enthusiast who’s losing his hair and growing his belly. Dorito’s, they’re just too good.
I'm Warren Groom and despite my own receding hairline, I have the crazy hair genes that my kids are now stuck with.
I was born in Norwich, UK, a small and beautiful city near the East coast of England. After meeting a delightful young lady on vacation in 2009, I flew to Canada to be with her. I’ve lived here, in Toronto, ever since. We got married, had 2 kids and I still really quite like her 🙂
How I got here
My journey into this world started when I was introduced to Photoshop in my teens, which led to an interest in photo editing and digital artwork. I paid a friend to build me a simple website to advertise my work and after being disappointed with the results, I reverse-engineered the website code in order to try and tweak it. A new passion was born and I’ve been coding ever since.
In an ever-developing industry, I’m always keeping up with the latest advances in website development coding techniques, standards, and browser developments. It’s very rare that I’m not in the middle of one course or another, as well as following industry leaders and contributing to the web dev community.
My future looks very much the same. I love what I do, I have a great relationship with my clients and my work improves every year that passes. Most “WordPress developers” can’t build true bespoke WordPress websites, so I’m positioned really well to continue providing my services for a long time.
