Latest Works.

Web Development: Over the last decade, I have updating my skills to the latest relevant technology. I have a background in building websites, coding, illustration and graphic design, primarily in WordPress and the Divi theme but I also have HTML/CSS3/JavaScript skills so can build any type of website which is why I am drawn to building Amazon S3 serverless websites. You can build full websites in an S3 bucket with the pay-as-you-go model instead of paying monthly for a WordPress hosting solution. So if you have a site with light traffic or just starting out and want something that costs pennies a month, this is a great solution. This is the first site that I built with these tools so will know the costs as the site grows. S3 buckets are serverless meaning that it can only handle HTML/CSS3/JavaScript and not WordPress or databases. There are major benefits to this platform if a site is more static which most are in my experience.

Twilio/AWS: a few years ago I began to see how relevant and powerful Twilio was for sending SMS notifications, IVR (phone routing), Voice and Chat. I built an SMS platform for a large electrical company in the Bahamas for billing notifications. I have added new features and built my source code out to handle WhatsApp and into other marketing needs. I have also recently built an SMS system for a local gym that connects Autopilot which is a bot that acts and feels like a real person answering questions. I am finding that this tool or AWS Lex can handle many things that a low level sales person may handle which for a small business not having the money to hire extra people, a bot could save thousands of dollars in salaries by having a bot handle many of the common questions that are asked. The end product could be a web chat, SMS message or even Facebook Messenger.
