And I like making clean, beautiful, and effective websites.Download Resume
I've been making websites for over 10 years, and have been working in the information technology field for 15. My bread and butter has been WordPress sites, but I also develop software and maintain Linux systems.
I'm also proficient with graphical software such as the Adobe Creative Cloud.
This site was built for Kawarthas Northumberland, for the annual Butter Tart Tour. The specs for this site changed over time, and what was initially going to be a single page evolved into a full site with full content management. The design was created by Emma Deugo from Studio-N. Since content was going to be added (not just edited) on the site, I made templates that could be used anytime they needed new sections, without them needing to get help from any developers. The site features some pretty interesting animations, that suit the whimsical nature of the event.
This is a site created on top of Wordpress, and designed by Nora Mickee of Studio-N. There’s quite a bit going on in the back end of this one, as the site needs to always be up-to-date with the vacancy of certain properties.
This site has a ton of content, and required a Google map populated with markers based on properties entered into the content management system (Wordpress). The design was created by Emma Deugo from Studio-N.
This site was created for a business that creates virtual floor plans for real estate purposes, as well as drone photography. The site was designed by Adam McKinlay of Studio-N, and was built using Wordpress as a content management system. The development of site went smoothly, but I ran into a great deal of difficulty with the API for iGuide’s webhooks. Ultimately, it turned out that I had been given an old version of their documentation. Once I was sent new documentation, I was able to work with the webhooks fairly easily.

This is a site that I took over from a previous developer. Much of the original style was maintained, but I opted to rebuild it from scratch as I found it to be bloated. It was originally adapted from a purchased Wordpress theme, and it had many plugins. Now, it’s using a clean theme built from the ground up, with minimal plugins. The site also has an online store built with Woocommerce, and is fully integrated with Printful. I’ve also created in house artwork for the business, and helped design branded clothing.

This site for WDI Graphics was both designed and developed by me while working for Studio-N. The client asked for a one-page scrolling site, and I opted for a clean, minimal, and flat look that he was happy with.
This is site has a great deal of content, including a searchable product catalog requiring some custom SQL queries as the default Wordpress search engine was insufficient. I also ended up needing to create many vector drawings for the varying moulding types.
I've recently done more work with Liquid (Shopify's template language), and React.
Prior to making websites I was a computer programmer using languages like C# and Java; but I've since come to really appreciate Python, and have spent some time working with Flask and Django.
Over the years I've also worked on-and-off in the human services field, as a direct support professional and an addictions counselor. I genuinely like helping people, so when I'm able to marry it with my computer experience is when I am the happiest.
In my personal life I am married with two children, both of whom are on the autism spectrum, so ASD is a topic that is very significant to me.
Again, I really do love helping people, so if there's anyway I can make your life easier, please don't hesitate to get in touch via:
