About GeneratePress

GeneratePress is a free WordPress theme that focuses on speed and usability. In addition to the free theme, we provide a premium plugin that extends the theme, adding more options to help you build your websites.

Since the beginning, GeneratePress has aimed to be a lightweight foundation that can tackle any website project. It aims to offer just the right amount of customization while staying incredibly light and stable.

We want you to feel confident that the code behind your (or your clients) websites is stable, secure and optimized.

In the 9 years since we launched, we’ve proven to be one of the most stable, best-supported WordPress themes available. We look forward to continuing that well into the future!

About Tom

My name is Tom Usborne and I’m the creator of GeneratePress.

I currently live in Alberta with my wife Stacey, and our three kids.

I’ve been working with WordPress for over 15 years, but have been creating websites since I was 11 years old.

Before GeneratePress, I was a freelance web designer/developer creating websites for small to medium-sized businesses.

Now, I spend all of my non-family time developing and supporting GeneratePress. 

Waking up every work day to work on GeneratePress is a dream come true.
