Innovative Web Solutions Driven By Modern Technologies
I have more than a decade of experience building complex interfaces and putting together solutions for all kinds of users. I can help you identify the most appropriate technologies for your project based on your business needs and goals.
With widespread quarantines during the pandemic, eCommerce has grown exponentially. That's why lately I've been delivering headless Shopify storefronts using React, GraphQL Storefront API, and a host of other API-driven technologies.
How I Can Benefit Your Web Project
A seasoned developer from a communications background with UX chops.
Before web development, my professional experience was in corporate communications. It's made me a better developer who delivers clear project updates – and I can write content whenever I need to.
I spent five years working as a UX developer on a 60-person user experience team. It's why I'm always striving to include new and innovative interactions to enhance UX.
My goal as a developer is to write less code more efficiently, combining the power of reusable components with modern tools. And I experiment continually with new techniques and tools to stay sharp and marketable.
If you have an eCommerce business idea but you don't know where to start, I can recommend the right suite of tools and technological approach based on current trends.
Core Web Vitals Optimization
Good Page Experience and Core Web Vitals are a must. Any good website should be optimized to load in the shortest time possible. I can help you identify all the opportunities for increasing your performance scores.
Headless eCommerce Storefronts
I believe headless solutions are the future of eCommerce because of their speed and flexibility. But it's not the right solution for every business. I can map out the implications for your business and help you decide which data-fetching approach is right for you.
Page Experience and Core Web Vitals
Page Experience is a set of signals from Google that measure how users perceive the experience of interacting with your website. Core Web Vitals are a set of real-world, user-centered metrics that quantify key aspects of your website's user experience.
Google uses Web Vitals and Page Experience to decide which links to display first in search results. I'll help ensure your Page Experience and Web Vitals are fully optimized so your content reaches the most people.

More Info About Me
I have answers.
This site uses Vercel for serverless functions and hosting, Next.js and React for rendering, Emotion for CSS, and Framer Motion and CSS for animations. Checkout out the Github repo for more info.
There are so many options for building websites nowadays, but in my personal opinion I like the balance between speed, developer experience, and static/dynamic rendering that Next.js offers. It allows you to get started on your project much faster than cobbling together dozens of plugins to get your environment set up.
In terms of CSS-in-JS, I tend to go for a solution like Emotion mostly because I prefer its scoping and naming conventions compared to how other libraries handle CSS-in-JS.

The pandemic pushed many more businesses online, and I think the Shopify platform has the most momentum, name recognition, and long-term potential. It’s an accessible, robust eCommerce platform that offers a lot of features out-of-the-box.
Shopify also offers the best inventory management experience for users, while the Storefront API offers a great developer experience.
Shopify's React-based framework called Hydrogen is poised to be an eCommerce game-changer too. There's a lot to like.
I'm a big believer in asynchronous communication when it comes to projects. That's why I like to record video walkthroughs to keep projects moving along. I typically send clients project update videos, which they can watch at their convenience. Then they can comment on the video using timestamps.
Trello is also a great tool for asynchronous project communication. Everything related to the project is in one place and you can comment on any aspect of the project at any time.
I like to work on all kinds of web projects!
During the pandemic I realized how much eCommerce was growing, and I saw how quickly Shopify was increasing their market share. That was the rationale behind my recent decision to focus on eCommerce storefronts.
