My name is David Artiss and I’m an Enterprise Happiness Engineer at Automattic, working on the WordPress VIP team. I provide front-line support to enterprise clients.

I am a WordCamp speaker and volunteer as well as a long-time contributor to WordPress, having assisted with Core, Documentation, Support and WordPress.TV. I am also the author of a number of free WordPress plugins.


When not working, I’m a blogger-cum-writer. This site was named as a weekly blog highlight by public relations service company Cision on 4th December 2009 and has been mentioned on the BBC website. Twice. I am also a journalist for the technology website, The Big Tech Question and have also been known to make an appearance on the PC Pro podcast.

I read as often as I can, watch a lot of films and listen to music and podcasts. An avid gamer and amateur theatre performer rounds off my social time.

Pescatarian and tea-total, I’m a hit at parties.
