Hello there! My name is Renzie, and welcome to my site!
This used to be a blog called “The Life and Times of The Renzie Man”, which started way back in 2007. This was way back when I was experimenting on not just WordPress, by LiveJournal and Blogger as well. That blog is actually still here, but I thought I’d give this site a revamp, and so here we are.
What Have I Been Up To These Days?
Currently, I do web development– mostly working on other sites built on WordPress. I’ve built sites for various clients, and now I’m actually working on a couple others as personal projects.
(Incidentally, yes, I’d like to keep this site running on a free version of WordPress. Read more about it here!)
At present, I work as a Project Manager for a web design/development company in Ortigas Center (here in the Philippines). I collaborate with a team of Art Directors, web designers & developers, putting together websites for real estate brokers and agents based/operating in the US, Caribbean and Canada.
Which means I’ve been brushing up on my skills with WordPress, SEO, HTML, CSS, Photoshop, etc. a lot lately.
