About Me

Robert Crain. (former) Director / Trustee

WordPress Professional. Website Auditing & Security. Drone Pilot @takenbydrone

I began developing websites for my own domain names, as well as domain names I managed, in the early 2000’s.

When I discovered WordPress (more than a dozen years ago), a whole new world opened up – not only for me, but also for all those budding online entrepreneurs wanting to use this platform for e-Commerce. I saw that this platform would be the future of both personal & business websites, and especially e-Commerce websites.

I’m self taught (I believe this is the best way to learn), and currently assist clients through various online forums (free and paid), and directly via referral from existing clients, and theme developers.

My days of designing websites is all but gone, but am happy to assist in theme customization and security. I also perform website audits, which basically translates into making sure your WordPress website is running as efficiently as possible, ensuring your plugins are up to date, and most importantly – that your WordPress website is as secure as possible.

As the owner / operator of Taken By Drone.com.au – An Aerial Photography Business, based in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, I Primarily cater to the realestate industry, and I also enjoy drone photography on a personal level.

After working at gaining my commercial pilot licence and grade 3 instructor rating, ‘thinking’ I would pursue an Aviation ‘career, I chose not to, due to the ridiculous wages on offer.

I’m occasionally involved with a Trust that was set-up in 2014/2015, allowing me to be involved in several property investments – a farm in Coonabarabran NSW, and several apartments on the Gold Coast, Queensland. The Trust also owns a Piper Warrior III and hangar, that operates both as an investment, and allows for some personal use.

Ultimately though, my passion is code. I love the WordPress platform, and everything it can do. I am in this line of work because I love it, not because I need it.
