Phil Ward

Phil is our resident pro wrestling Web Developer. Phil got into web development in his teens when he used to build websites on his home computer. This gradually built his confidence in complex web development, which encouraged him to give professional web development a go in 2008 after completing his Classics degree at the University of Warwick. Since then, he’s worked in a variety of in-house and agency environments and even worked freelance before joining our team in July 2016.

Phil started using WordPress in 2013 for his freelance web development projects. Phil loves building custom functionality into WordPress. He’s really excited about the Rest API which will help push WordPress as an application framework.

Phil is a professional wrestler, and he plays and coaches rugby. When he’s out of the ring and the pitch, Phil loves to read business development books and fantasy fiction, with ambitions to write his own fantasy novel one day.
