About

My name is Peter Booker, I live in the east of England and spend my day developing products and services for WordPress, most recently the WPDirectory service.

I thrive on the challenge of solving problems, ultimately saving
people time and helping them to reach their potential. There is nothing
more satisfying to me than working with stakeholders to solve a problem.

I have a variety of interests and I like to try a bit of everything. I
love reading (especially philosophy), coding and running statistical
modelling. I enjoy running and various sports- I played American
Football as a left tackle and completed the ToughGuy race several times.

My Favourite Books

  • The Selfish GeneRichard Dawkins
  • The RepublicPlato
  • The Leader on the CouchKets de Vries
  • How the Mind WorksSteve Pinker

These books (and many others) have transformed my understanding of the world around me and how I interact with it.
