Web App for Visualization

Git2Townscaper is meant to convert a GitHub profile activity graph into Townscaper houses using the graph activity levels for coloring. Because Townscaper is limited in how many blocks you can build horizontally, the script turns the graph from day-by-day to month. The height of the buildings represents the level of activity summed up for that month. Currently, it only takes what GitHub shows by default on your profile with no year selection.

Sketch to WordPress Theme

I implemented a wonderful design made by a very talented designer. My job turned the sketch design into a pixel-perfect version that looks good on any device. The back-end implementation needed minor tweaks for functionality and ease of editing.

Portfolio Website Design and Coding

This is my website used for showcasing the projects I have been involved in. It is designed by yours truly using Lunacy and implemented using VueJS 2. This new website replaces the old domain I had for the same purpose.

WordPress Website Maintenance

The client asked for assistance with removing a hard-coded social share feature from their blog posts, causing their page format to look off-centered. They also asked me to make a kid theme so that any custom modifications to their premium theme would not be lost upon update. I also took the time to explain the new back-end characteristics added with respect to the ease-of-use functionality I had incorporated.

WordPress Website Design Fixes

I was hired to do some maintenance work on this wonderful website about women's healthcare. The previous developer got it to a point but was unable to complete it. The client expected the result to be as close to the design as possible, which I accomplished. Furthermore, I automated the process of adding products to a listing page to reduce intervention.

WordPress Developer for an Education Website

The client required a website redesign. I collaborated closely with their designer to create a pixel-perfect design replica. Each section was editable, movable, and reusable, making creating or editing pages a breeze. This project concluded with tutorial videos I created for their content creators' ease of use and training.

BookTradeRooms | WordPress-based Accommodation Website for Contractors and Tradesmen

BookTradeRooms.com is a directory of accommodation listings for contractors and tradesmen working in the UK and Ireland. With over 30,000 listings, the website helps tradesmen find affordable and convenient places to stay while working away from home. It is free to use and doesn't charge commissions, allowing clients to contact the accommodation owner directly. The website's motto is "The one-stop website designed for contractors and tradesmen working away," making it easy for tradesmen to find last-minute accommodation at the right price. I also built an Android application for it.

Marketing 101 | Customized WordPress Site

This website, which now looks different, was initially coded by me from PSD designs. I also implemented heavy customization in the back end with custom fields. The website no longer reflects my work as it has been replaced.

Striking Content | Highly Customized WordPress Site

Built from the ground up, following the given PSD designs, this was one of my easiest projects to work on. I implemented heavy customization in the back end by using custom fields. The website no longer represents my work.

Gemba | Highly Customized WordPress Site

I implemented customizations in the back-end for front-end purposes, using custom fields. The theme was built from scratch following the PSD file given.

Staff Roster WordPress Plugin

A plugin for managing staff and assigning staff to shifts for a period of time. It also displays on the front-end the roster along with being able to choose any day and see who is working. Of course, it has a module for adding, editing, or deleting staff member information.

Zetta.net (now Arcserve)| PSD to PHP Conversions

I created tens of PHP pages for Zetta.net following designs and instructions regarding the functionality that often included animations and transitions.

Personal Portfolio | Simple Angular Site

This is actually my presentation site that I did in Angular (Angular 1).

Marketo HTML templates

I coded Marketo email templates from designs for Piqora.

Milkman Bottles Game App

A cute Android puzzle game based on the Towers of Hanoi recursion.

AngularJS Weather and Mobile Weather App

I built both the desktop and Android web view with AngularJS consuming a weather API.
