History of Richie KS and Dezzain.com
Hello, my name is Richie KS, I’m the creator and editor of Dezzain.com, together with my brother Ronald and Rayner.
I’m also a web developer and SEO enthusiast. I’ve been developing websites for more than 17 years now. In this blog, I will share my tips on how to build, design, and develop a website, how to SEO your website, and also how to do business marketing effectively.
Dezzain.com is developed and still run by Richie KS. He was born in 1981 and he currently lives in East Malaysia with his 4 family members. Richie KS is a loving family man and always puts the family first priority. Richie graduated from the University of Malaysia Science and has a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science.
During 1998-2002, fresh from graduation, Richie worked as a Computer Engineer and also did some programming and coding work for a local design studio firm. With 4 years of work experience, in 2003 Richie was hired by a leading Design Agency in Singapore and did part-time/full-time outsourced web programming and design consultant work.
in 2005, Richie started to learn how to work with WordPress – Content Management System. By that time, WordPress is still a mid-stage development but was already used by more than 1 million bloggers worldwide. Richie fills in his pass time reading books on WordPress and improving his knowledge of WordPress, Web Design, and Standard Web Coding.
Dezzain.com was established in mid-2005 where its original purpose is for Richie to blog about WordPress, Designs, Coding, and Personal stuff. He also started working with WordPress Themes and release more than 5 Free WordPress themes for the WordPress community during that time. By 2006, Richie started to work part-time for one of the leading WordPress Experts, Incsub doing some PSD to HTML and PSD to WordPress work.
By that time, Richie’s knowledge of WordPress had grown, and becoming more familiar with WordPress core and customization work. in 2008, he was officially hired full-time by James Farmer from Incsub and join others to work with the development of WPMUDEV, WPMU.org, Edublogs, and Incsub Projects. During 2008-2012, Richie worked with WPMUDEV and create some Premium and Multi-Functional WordPress and BuddyPress Themes such as BlogsMU, BuddyPress Corporate, Nelo, and others. After 6 years of wonderful work time with incsub, in April 2012, Richie KS honorable leave the developer position there and started to work on Dezzain.com development and Freelancing work.
With the increased knowledge of WordPress and BuddyPress, he started to write tutorials and tips on working with WordPress. in 2013-Present day, he also releases a multi-functional free WordPress, BuddyPress, and Woocommerce themes in Dezzain.com and WordPress Themes Directory. Aside from that, he also works freelance when available and still has 1-2 WordPress learning books near his working desk which he read from time to time. He’s a 100% nerd in nature 🙂 Hopefully, Richie will stay healthy and write more tutorials, and tips and release more Free WordPress and BuddyPress Themes in the future. Wish him luck and support his work if you can. to continue.
