The most amazing...

...front-end project I delivered was for the cosmetic market using React. It had a surprisingly profound effect on their client "stickiness" and sales.


  • Senior React Developer for a Data-driven Sales Platform

    2021 - 2022
    • Hired to build out some major features for their company (Saved Goal Cards). This was one of their largest and most anticipated features, very intricate in the front end handling the majority of the process versus making API calls.
    • Created a shortcut button within the app to help busy sales managers quickly navigate and take action.
    • Delivered results for Saved Cards above expectations and sooner than expected.
    • Helped them create onboarding for other developers as they were working on building their internal team.

  • eCommerce App for Cosmetics

    Completely revamped the face of a cosmetic brand's site and saw shockingly quantifiable results. This project served as a great example of what happens when you switch to React for your user interface. This can vastly improve the user's experience and, in turn, reduce marketing expenditure drastically to achieve the same if not better result. The gratitude from affiliates and vendors in this company was well received and personally very fulfilling.

  • Mortgage Valuation and Marketing Site

    This project is a great example of having both something attractive enough that a company can send traffic to, and that can also be used as a tool for customers and representatives. This is a three-in-one asset and another reason how web apps can simplify marketing and sales efforts.

  • Personal Care Branded Site

    This project created a better eCommerce journey and raised those dopamine levels with each scroll and mouse hover, giving people enough time to truly observe and understand what the brand conveys despite its sensitive nature. I worked as the senior React developer to revamp the website.
