Hi, I’m Jamie, the founder of Pootlepress.

I’ve spent my career building online businesses and have held board level technical and commercial roles at private and publicly listed companies. Prior to founding Pootlepress, I was Managing Director of Pavilion Publishing Ltd and before that Chief Technical Officer of Documedia PLC.

I’ve trained over 5000 people on WordPress in the past 10 years, and our plugins are used by thousands of customers worldwide. My YouTube channel is dedicated to helping people with WordPress and has now over 30,000 subscribers.
