About

Personal

Ryan HolderI was born in South Africa and have spent most of my life living in Durban. I grew up surrounded by an amazing family filled with wise and wonderful characters, none more so than my late Grandfather. With him I would spend hours watching episodes of “Beyond 2000” or classic movies like “James Bond”, “Jaws” and “Indiana Jones”

I am now married to the most amazing woman in the world (granted I might be biased) who inspires me daily with her unequalled drive to succeed at all aspects of her life. Together we left behind family and friends in May 2013 to start a new adventure by moving to London where we currently live.

I feel I should also mention that I am a passionate sports fan with a passion for tennis and golf. I am also a true Formula 1 nut head.

Professional

I work for a large corporate but within a small and awesome team of developers in the R&D department where over the course of 5 years we have got to work on some very exciting projects.

WordPress

My first experience with WordPress was in 2006 after being asked to modify a Kubrick theme for a Cape Town based tech startup. Through my work commitments I have never taken the opportunity to commit myself 100% to being part of the community however I have remained active in working on WordPress related side projects and attending (and volunteering) at a few WordCamps.
