I am an English, Santa Barbara-based Web Mangler! I specialise in leading people through the development of archetype-based, guerilla-style, certified-fresh eCommerce websites using Shopify. I am an official Shopify Expert. That's my forte... Helping people who don't know how (with no shenanigans!)
