I've been building websites for 15 years. I'm a computer systems engineer turned web developer, product creator, and entrepreneur.Download CV
I have been building websites since the 2000s. After studying computer systems engineering in university, I went door-to-door to sell websites to small establishments such as bakeries and stores. I have been building sites on WordPress for over 10 years. While I have a solid grasp of back-end architecture, I wouldn't claim to be a full-stack developer. However, this understanding allows me to comprehend how front-end changes impact the back-end and vice versa.
Despite lacking formal education in product creation, I am passionate about creating new digital products for my daily work and projects I am involved in. I always seek the best productivity practices and efficiency to run and grow a business.
I have successfully maintained recurring clients for over 10 years, providing support to launch their ideas into websites. I have encapsulated my freelance experience into my own web agency, IDCO.
I have maintained my blog for over 10 years, sharing my entrepreneurial journey and more recently, my experience in web development. I continue this habit as a tool to document my journey and provide assistance to future web developers.

I have worked on various projects for SynerComm involving the creation of new pages, landing pages, and updates, utilizing tools such as WordPress and HubSpot. Throughout these projects, I collaborated closely with external designers who provided stunning mockups. This collaborative effort allowed us to work together seamlessly in building the pages, ensuring a cohesive and visually appealing end result.
I played a crucial role in the team responsible for the re-design of their WordPress website. With the design team having prepared the mockup, I joined as a web developer to bring the new website to life. Initially, I created the website on a staging site, ensuring its alignment with the approved design. Once the website received final approval, I successfully published it, resulting in overwhelming customer satisfaction.
The objective of this project was to recreate the client's website, which was originally built using Wix, and migrate it to WordPress. I worked on the mock-up concept using a WordPress theme and implemented it through a child theme. The outcome was a significantly more functional, flexible, and scalable website, granting the client full control over their online presence.
The client sought to migrate their 6-year-old website to a fresh new look and feel. For this project, I utilized Bootstrap, ensuring a modern and responsive design. Additionally, the website was optimized to showcase the client's in-house products and facilitate lead generation. By implementing this solution, the client gained full control over the new look of their website, while also setting the foundation for future scalability and growth.
The main goal of this project was to modernize an outdated Joomla website by implementing a custom FIFO (First-In, First-Out) form. I collaborated with a team of designers and developers to create and integrate the FIFO into the new website. The FIFO functioned flawlessly, meeting the deadline, and resulted in a significant increase of 500+ new page views per month for the client.
This project involved a partnership where a website update and relaunch were required. The existing website was 5 years old and needed a fresh user experience (UX) design. Additionally, over 100 new online courses were to be added. To achieve this, we built the website using Bootstrap, implementing structural and design changes through HTML, CSS3, and PHP coding. The outcome of this project was remarkable. The website's social media views doubled, showcasing its increased visibility and engagement. Most importantly, the company achieved profitability within just 3 months after the relaunch, highlighting the success of the project in driving business growth.
