Craig Gomes

Chief Executive Officer & Founder, Pixelvise

I am a web designer, digital strategist and entrepreneur. I’ve pretty much always had a knack for creating something new on my own. From websites, applications, software, digital art, video games, books and drones, I’ve done it all. In short, designing, building, launching and scaling products and startups is my jam — right now I am specifically focusing on WordPress and web-based products.
Currently, I’m the proud Founder and CEO of Pixelvise, a creative agency helping people get their online business off the ground. Since its establishment, Pixelvise has worked with over 500+ brands, including some fine companies like Dropbox, Amazon, Google & Marriott. We’re making a real difference on how millions of folks use WordPress everyday and get their businesses online.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope it inspires you in some way. Everything I say is from my personal experience. None of the things I share on this blog will make you “get rich quick” — far from it. Building an online business takes a lot of time, hard work, patience, and some amount of luck. My goal is to share my experiences, lessons I learned, case-studies, and resources to help you build a successful online business.

Once again, thanks a lot for taking the time to read this. I look forward to connecting with you. In all, I love what I do & I couldn’t ask for more.
