Digital Focus Asia Website
I translated all the designs to a working WordPress website. I built the theme from scratch, using the necessary JavaScript (jQuery) for the animations, as well as Sass and Bootstrap for my responsive web design implementation. I took care of the content management as well and set up everything for the administrator.

Stratpoint Technologies, Inc. Website

I was part of the initiative to revamp the company's existing website in 2018. My primary role was to implement the new designs as well as any additional features and animations to improve the interface. There have been minor changes to some of the sections since then, but most of the original HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are still being used.

Scalabrini Migration Center (SMC) Website

I was asked to help revamp the website. I set everything up on the client's server (WordPress), took care of all the CMS functionalities, and translated the designs provided. I also migrated the content from the old website and provided quality assurance and unit testing.

Watsons PH Career Website

I was the lead developer for this OutSystems project, handling most of both the front-end and back-end functionalities. The website was build from scratch and took two or three months to complete. Instead of a separate portal for the counter-part CMS, the website has an edit mode facility that allows the administrator to edit the content on the fly.
