Hi, I’m Paul! I’m a website development consultant with nearly 20 years of professional experience, I feel like I’ve been making websites for longer than I’ve been alive.
I got my start back in the 90s when everything you needed to know could be fit in a single HTML 4 Dummies book, and I built my first website for a “client” when I was 14 for a non-profit group, using a small custom-made CMS. It was a wonderful experience and flash forward to almost 20 years later, I’ve built and contributed to the code of hundreds of websites and am eager to take a look at yours!
I specialize in
- Full website builds
- Unique front-end development and animation
- E-commerce sites powered by Woocommerce and Shopify
- Custom plugin development to do pretty much anything
I pride myself in being able to see beyond the technical requirements and help my clients reach their true business targets. Technology is really just a means to an end, in most cases. It could be to reach some marketing goal, create a return on investment, promote an idea or publish entertainment, and a website is just the go-between. Since you can’t physically meet every person who visits your site, it has to act as your ambassador. It has to do the work of telling people what you need them to know and do so in a way that reflects well on you.
And that’s where real joy in my work comes from, when I can help a person or company connect with their audience in a way that is engaging and creates new relationships. So how can I help you make new connections?
Here’s some websites I built for super awesome people
The TackHack (Project Developer and Designer)
A custom experience built on Shopify with a unique instant filtering engine for product collections. Development included a complete migration from WooCommerce with thousands of records of customized data.
Oryana (Lead Developer and Design Support)
A medium-sized website to promote the store, publish recipes, and provide community outreach.
ENT Medical Services (Lead Developer and Designer)
A small multi-site for an ENT practice with a product gallery and interactive map.
PropertyOwnerData (Lead Designer and Developer)
A filtering, search, and mapping engine for browsing and exporting millions of property listings at a time. Even prints labels.
I couldn't be more pleased with Paul's work on my two websites. He was patient and thorough every step of the way, and used language that was precise yet easy to understand. He made lots of good suggestions, and was always friendly, cheerful, and eager to make the sites look just the way I wanted. I've already recommended him to a friend. Thank you, Codeable, and thank you, Paul, for a job well done.
It has been very nice working with Paul. He is a skilled, fast and efficient developer. My business today is better and has a better future, because he has participated in it. It has been a pleasure, we will continue working together!
Paul is an exceptional developer, a real professional in both his programming and communication skills. He was able to fully understand and look into our project details and needs and to come up with the right recommendations as well as optimal implementation for our website. I'm very satisfied with the end results and I can recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced, skilled developer that can deliver on time. Thanks again Paul!
Paul has been a pleasure to work with throughout the project. He asked in-depth and insightful questions to clarify the brief, and made suggestions on how the plugin he was building for us could be made more effective. He has a very high work ethic and apologised profusely at a slightly delay in the project which I hadn't even noticed! His work is very accurate with excellent attention to detail. I look forward to working with him again.
Thanks for your time and effort Paul!
Paul was patient with me, a person with enough information to make me dangerous.
Because Paul is super flexible, available, responsive and willing to help you learn to do things on your own!
Paul is a problem solver and is well-rounded in his ability to understand my needs and provide the most optimal solution for the development tasks assigned to him. Strongly recommended.
