Web Architecture & Development.

UX driven, business holistic. 

Hi, I’m Michelle.

I help online & e-commerce businesses build outstanding customer experiences & effortless internal processes through custom web application development.

And it all starts with understanding & designing the user journey as well as the needs and goals of your business.


Before jumping into the technical details, you and I invest time in understanding the needs and goals of your business and designing the user journey (often in a workshop format).

This becomes the foundation for the websites, applications, and integrations I build.

I believe that the quality of my questions and the depth of my understanding of your business and customer determine the quality of the solution I can build for you.


I have over 10 years of experience working with clients in 5+ countries in e-commerce, business, and technology.

I’ve been working remotely since 2014 and have lived in or visited 40+ countries.

I understand business & online marketing.

I have a degree in Computer Science.
