Your Team

We are WordPress experts. We work with WordPress each and every day. We are one of the leading, trusted WordPress customization shops in the industry.


Founder/Creative Director

As a lifelong creative with a serious eye for detail — and a BFA in Graphic Design to back it up — Travis’ true loves are great design, amazing typography, pixel-perfect layouts and killer code. While Travis is all business during the day, outside of these walls, his passions are reading non-fiction, making music, traveling with his wife Jenna, living a vegetarian lifestyle, and anything involving ancient astronaut theories (what?!).


Founder/Director of Dev

Nick has spent his whole career creating for the Internet. His ability to problem-solve has led to a serious depth of knowledge in interactive software development and design. Nick is known for his enthusiasm for technology and building “really cool stuff.” Before WerkPress, Nick spent time at several full-service agencies working with a diverse set of brands, including Sanus, Best Buy, Walmart and CostCo.


Project Manager

Project Manager Lindsey brings over seven years of experience working as part of an interactive team, first as a content producer for the Fargo Forum newspaper, then moving onto other projects for parent company Forum Communications — including managing large-scale website builds and launches. She now resides in Minneapolis with her husband Pablo and their fat cat, Shinobi. Lindsey’s interests include puzzles, piano rock, knitting, and... weight lifting to thrash metal. There you go, we like ‘em well-rounded.


Lead Developer

Our fearless Lead Developer, Justin, was born and raised in the great state of Minnesota. While in college studying Network Modeling and Simulation, he started learning development as a hobby. Now that it’s become a full-blown career, Justin has had to shift his free-time focus on different things — mainly running, foosball, golf and coffee. And when he decides to combine foosball and coffee... well, don’t say we didn’t warn you.


Get to Know Us

Founders Travis Totz and Nick Pelton formed WerkPress in 2011 with the goal of creating a WordPress-focused studio able to provide any WordPress service needed, from consultation and strategy to design, development and maintenance. We now have 14 people in-house and have become one of the leading WordPress customization shops in the world.
