My name is Andrei Chira.
I live in Romania (Eastern Europe). I’m a WordPress power user, online entrepreneur & WordCamp speaker.
I’ve been working online since 2001 and started my own company in 2007.
At first, I tried to sell physical goods, I had a graphic t-shirts store but as I discovered & fell in love with WordPress in 2009 I realised I was better at helping others with technical stuff than I was at selling t-shirts.
I began to focus on providing WordPress related services like building & optimizing WordPress websites and also launching different publishing projects, like my wife’s fashion & shopping magazine.
Since 2012 I’m running a small WordPress hosting company.
We are mostly hosting small & medium independent publishers and our objective is to offer better shared hosting and help them grow.
In 2014 I attended WordCamp Romania as a speaker. My presentation was about how WordPress changed my life and how I’ve built my business around WordPress.
Over the years, I have optimized hundreds of WordPress websites so I decided to start fasterWP.com and publish as much information as I can from my personal experience.
In my spare time I like doing creative stuff so I make child themes for Genesis Framework. I’m not a developer, I just play around with different colors and font combinations on top of the Genesis Sample theme. The resulting child themes are free to download here.
Some people ask me about the theme names, the explanation behind them is pretty simple – I like Japanese words for some reason, so I just used Japanese baby names I got from this website when naming the themes.
Another question I get is why are the themes free. Well, free doesn’t mean poor quality, I give them for free because if I would take money for them, making themes would start to feel like work and I don’t want that, I want to enjoy and relax designing in my spare time.
In 2017 we started to offer WordPress maintenance & support service. Because our infrastructure is in Eastern Europe we cannot offer web hosting to a worldwide audience but what we can help with is expert WordPress support. We host about 4000 domains on our servers (mostly WordPress installs) and our team has a strong expertise in offering support.
You can get our maintenance and support service here.
