Resume/C.V.

My name is Mark Ratledge and I'm a WordPress consultant and technical writer based in Choteau and Missoula, Montana, USA.

I'm ranked in the top 1% of WordPress consultants on Elance. I am skilled in themes and design, the Genesis Framework, site speed and server optimizations, SEO, security and hack repairs, MySQL and PHP, VPS and shared hosts.

I work as a volunteer moderator in the tech support forums at WordPress.org. I also participate at Stack Overflow.com and WordPress Answers (a Stack Exchange site).

I work with the Genesis Framework by StudioPress, so my customers have control of their websites and can modify elements on their own.

I also do ExpressionEngine, Blogger, BlogEngine, TypePad, Movable Type and Textpattern migrations to WordPress.
