Experienced WordPress Developer over 15+ years experience. I make complete websites to any design and also can update older websites for SEO, page speed, and new designs. Fast turnaround and reasonable rates. I work mostly in WordPress, which means I know how to use it, and how to make it work in unique ways. I’ve built sites across many themes with many different purposes, needs and audiences. I'm a WP Elevation member and am comfortable with WordPress development, customizations and tweaks. I also use visual drag and drop web builder so that you can continue to maintain your website easily. I can be hired for small tweaks, to take your copy and assets and create a site, or to do the whole thing from soup to nuts. My communication skills make me particularly suited to tell a story across a site and organize content effectively and strategically. Thank you and look forward to working with you ❤️ PS. I speak fluent English, French and Portuguese

Curriculum Vitae

A couple of months before starting on Freelancer, I have been asked to create a CV. After some long minutes of thinking in front of a blank sheet, I've thrown away everything I knew about a Curriculum Vitae. I started doing one in Adobe Photoshop (correct, it's not the appropriate software!), in the form of a sausage machine where the reader is guided in a process and told a story. Don't be afraid to be original, it creates memorable experiences! Link available for customers.

The Factsheet can be presented over a Video Chat session on Freelancer.
