Hi, I'm Alex MacArthur.


I'm a web developer in Nashville.


My wife, daughter, and I moved here in September, 2015 to work for Dave Ramsey. Prior to that, my development career began unexpectedly shortly after college, when I started self-teaching the basics. I'm now excited and grateful that I get to use the skills I love to help advance a mission that matters.

My approach to development prides keeping things light, efficient, and unique. You won't see my projects using an off-the-shelf theme that's tweaked a little bit, or an overbloated drag & drop solution that kills performance and SEO. If we're going to build something, we're going to build it right, performant, and effective.


What I Regularly Work With
  • WordPress
  • PHP
  • CSS, SASS
  • JavaScript, jQuery
  • Git
  • Jekyll

I design & build websites and tools.


In my spare time, I enjoy (a lot!) building a variety of web-related tools & sites, with that variety growing every day. Below is just a taste.
