A creative jack-of-all-trades, I got a PhD in performing arts before starting two businesses: WP SuperGeek, which helps small businesses and non-profits take control of their WordPress websites, and Shapeshift Productions, a body-positive photography studio.
Working on web, photography, video, and design projects, I offer a personalised, jargon-free mix of creative flair and technical expertise.
Originally from Australia, I now live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my husband, two sons, and cat.
Tessa had some great design ideas and was easy to work with.
Jolene Langman, Travelogix
Tessa is super-efficient, she’s got great communication skills (no geeky jargon), and she has great follow-up. It’s so easy to work with her.
Erin O'Brien, Activate28
Tessa is nothing short of a true professional and I couldn’t be happier with my website.
Suzan Saad, Suzanna Style
I really appreciated Tessa’s prompt email replies and meeting out agreed timelines too so I never had to worry if we would be on schedule.
Wendy Schlipalius, Italicherry Design Studio
Tessa did a brilliant job of re-creating my existing website in WordPress. There were several tricky problems that she solved for me to help ensure I don’t lose any of my inbound links or the value of past optimisation efforts.

In addition to being wildly talented at design and creating everything and anything I could dream of, Tessa is lightening fast, patient with my process, and an inspiring problem solver.
Suzannah Neufeld, MFT
Tessa was responsive to all of my requests, she held my hand through all the technical aspects of the website and she managed to build a complex and impressive website in such a short amount of time.
I wanted something simple, clear and included my clients. Tessa made it happen and gave very valid suggestions along the way. I can now update the information in it by myself.
Eneida Serravalle, Joe & Me Pilates
Tessa is a fantastic creative with a boundless amount of motivation, positivity and artistic integrity. She instantly engages with an infectious level of energy, and natural ability to communicate and explore creative ideas within the frame of what the client is giving her.
Tessa was brilliant to work with – so fast and accurate.
