Web developer, project manager, and digital marketer focused on growing businesses.

Web Development

I developed my first custom Wordpress website in 2009 after I realized that I could completely change the design of a theme using a child theme. Since then, front-end development has been one of my primary passions. I enjoy building responsive, interactive, and useful websites on various platforms. Recently I’ve been most interested in developing server-less solutions, which led me to adopt the use of static generators like Jekyll, Hugo, and Vue JS.

Languages/platforms/generators:

Javascript, PHP, HTML/CSS, Liquid templating, Wordpress, Jekyll, Hugo, Vue, Shopify

Project management

As a web developer, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with talented teams for companies like Dell Technologies, Fullstack Digital, and DDN Storage. In many cases, I’ve taken a critical role on projects with tight deadlines and ambitious requests.

Due to my diverse work history, I’ve been involved in every aspect of the client acquisition and project lifecycle. For example, lead generation and cold outreach, proposal writing, drafting SOW and technical requirements, interfacing with clients, managing sub-contractors and employees, executing the required work, and providing ongoing support.

SEO & Marketing

Since 2009, I’ve extensively researched and applied SEO techniques. From keyword research and topic strategy to technical SEO, my strategies have a proven track record of getting websites relevant traffic.

I have extensive experience generating leads and performing cold outreach. For example, I developed a lead aggregator to streamline warm lead generation.

Digital Marketing skills:

Personal development aspirations

Let’s Encrypt set the new web-standard for encryption: SSL certificates should be free and accessible to non-technical users.

In the near future, I think web hosting and website builders will be free or extremely low-cost. I’m currently developing an open source, serverless website builder that will allow non-technical users to benefit from the power of static site generators without needing to commit a line of code.
