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 hosting small & medium independent publishers, 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 sometimes 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 a Genesis Starter theme. The resulting child themes are free to download here.
Some 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.
But enough about me.
What about you? What do you want to do online?
Are you starting or growing your website? Do you want to make it faster and more scalable?
How can I help you?
