Programming Technical Lead
I am a programmer born and bred. Developing since I was old enough to type on a keyboard and continue to refine my skills more and more every day. Backed by 14 years of experience and countless lines of code committed.
Background with more anagrams than a bureaucrat, here are some of the highlights only;
- eCommerce ( Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce, neto )
- Traditional Web ( HTML, CSS, JS )
- Modern Web ( ES6, TS, GraphQL )
- Server Side ( NodeJS, PHP, .NET )
- Client Side ( C/C++, Java )
- Database Side ( SQL, NoSQL )
- Frameworks ( React, Web Components )
- Antiques ( Lua, jQuery, SOAPXML )
- Flashy ( OpenGL, Vulkan, Unity )
- Boring ( Google Data Studio )
- Servers ( AWS, CloudFlare, Heroku, Azure )
- Every "API"
- Ask me for a comprehensive list.
I'm currently working full-time as a Technical Lead working with the Shopify Plus platform. I have been working with the platform every day for over 4 years, and enjoy working with it immensely.
Working with Liquid, REST and GraphQL App Development and general Shopify consulting. I have had the privilage of working with countless Shopify Plus clients.
Despite Shopify's reputation, I have been able to make it do tricks thought impossible. I find working with Shopify's unique quirks very rewarding, and continuously find ways to surprise everyone, including myself.
I spend most of my spare time considering programming concepts, and take a very pragmatic approach to planning software development. I enjoy unpacking what programming itself means and entails to come up with new paradigms to use in my job.
I also have an appreciation for the raw power of technology and making something beautiful and intricate out of the minimal amount of tools. Hence this website appearing so basic.
I also enjoy video games and antique electronics. I still own four old CRT Monitors that I love and use as my primary video game displays.
I don't do social media often, however you can find me below. For business enquiries contact I suggest LinkedIn.
