About Me

A front-end developer from the Chicagoland area with experience in building landing pages, PSD to HTML/CSS, API implementation, creating static sites from scratch without the use of frameworks, Shopify and Wordpress/WooCommerce store setup and theme modification, developing responsive sites for optimal viewing on desktop and mobile devices, debugging and troubleshooting, familiar with a bit of social media marketing such as running Facebook Ads, Google Analytics, and more.

I consider my skills in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and responsive design to be pretty solid. On a daily basis (try to at least) I work on expanding my knowledge by reading about and/or trying out new tools, tech, frameworks, or libraries that'll aide me in becoming a better front-end developer.

I am currently part of a small fully remote team that optimizes Shopify sites. The optimizations I perform, among other things, include lazy loading implementation, conditional loading of scripts, removing leftover code from uninstalled apps, troubleshooting and error fixes, auditing theme code to find perfomance improvement opportunities, and sometimes design changes and feature implementations. I also communicate directly with customers from project start to project completion and providing a great customer experience is essential for me to consider a project to have been successfully delivered.

Since I work with Shopify sites every day, I am continually working on building my skills in Liquid templating language. I'd also like to use it with Jekyll to rebuild this site.

Thank you for checking out my site; hopefully we'll get to work together some day!
