    svelte-podcast

    svelte-podcast is an open source package providing tools to make building Podcast websites easier. Working with media players can be frustrating and time consuming. My goal for this package is to get empower developers to quickly and easily build custom podcast players, or build ontop of existing player UI.

    This is an ongoing project that I'm still working on.

    Local crafting community

    Supporting local buisnesses is important to me, and with my skills I believe I have more ways to do that than just with my wallet.

    In 2020 I started supporting the Craft Coop, a collective of independant crafters local to me. It seemed particularly hard to 'fit' their needs into the solutions provided by turnkey solutions like Wordpress and Shopify. I opted to build a bespoke solution for them to manage their stores, events, and ticketing system.

    I don't think I could have done as much as I did in the time I alocated without Sanity.io - a service providing the power of tools like Wordpress to developers. I've found this to be a great balance of control and reliability.

    Welness app marketing campaign

    #FreeTimeNotScreenTime was a campaign for nlbb. Our goal was to help people understand how small changes to their daily routines can have a big impact on their wellbeing.

    In this project I made use of Svelte and serverless functions to generate unique pledge certificates for each user who set a screen time goal.

    Esports team site

    Digniras is a world-reknown esports team competing in various titles such as League of Legends. I worked with Designers at PaperCrowns to build their bespoke site after their rebrand in 2020.

Some call me as a designer who codes,
and some a developer who designs.
But let's be real here,
I am simply a master of disguise.
