I’m a software consultant who helps with the development of the user experience (UX). With 10+ years in the game, I help you evolve your existing or legacy frontend stack to ship incrementally. I specialize in the following.
Incremental, continuous delivery. Don’t see progress for weeks? Doesn’t turn out how you imagined? I spot bottlenecks to help you connect faster to what you’re creating. Your team will love the momentum from showing, not telling.
Stuck with a UX mess? Didn’t bake in UX from the start? That’s okay. It happens to everyone.
Improve incrementally, without rewriting from scratch. Delivering frequently actually reduces risk. Rewriting is a risky shock to your codebase and customers. Nobody wants to get shocked.
Use design systems to rethink your designer-developer handoff. No designer? Stay lean with open frameworks.
Stuck with legacy, buggy, or unfinished code? I have a knack for debugging. I love to strategize how to evolve a system from current point A to desired point B. Then change the plane’s engines during flight.
Automated tests. Haven’t been testing your frontend? Certain changes collapse the house of cards? I’ve worked on teams with 0% test coverage and 100% test coverage. I teach the happy medium.
Team augmentation. I can spike the above processes with you. Or handle overflow tasks. I’ve worked remotely, asynchronously, and independently for years.
Overcommunication. I’ve been on both sides of the consultant vs. hiring in-house debate. If I’m unable to integrate well, I’ll be the squeaky wheel. I want our collaboration to be efficient and a good experience for all.
