I build online products and help others do the same. I do it because it's fun and, apparently, I'm pretty good at it :-)


Favorite stack: nginx, PHP7+, MySQL, Laravel, Bootstrap, VueJS

For the past 9 years I've been building web apps for creative agencies, businesses, NGOs and individuals. I've done this as an employee, a freelancer, then as part of a team at my company, :DigitallyHappy. I've also worked on some super-secret projects and big brands. I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you...

During these years, I've opened and closed two tech startups and one brick & mortar busines. These failed initiatives have helped me understand on-line businesses from a few more angles (business, marketing, growth, UX) and get a lot better at prioritization. The experience and knowledge I've gained from them have vastly improved :DigitallyHappy, and our clients are happy to confirm that :-)

In 2016 I've built and launched an open-source software that has caught on like wildfire, so now apart from running :DigitallyHappy, I'm trying to make an open-source business model work work work, work work. It's been a wonderful experience and a great challenge.
