Willing is a leader in online will creation and end of life planning services. The SaaS is so well thought out, you can have your will ready in minutes and save hundreds of dollars otherwise spent in attorney fees.

Man Sports

Man Sports is an online shop for sport supplements and apparel. I started my work on this project first by refactoring the application code to improve performance and reduce page load time. I then continued to make other improvements on the website by adding new functionality, redesigning pages, and improving the checkout flow.
