Hello, my name is Brandon! I am an accomplished full-stack developer. I am based in Spokane, Washington but I primarily work remotely. My focus for a while was on the front-end. As a result, I am strong in WordPress theme development, Vue.js, React.js, CSS, and responsive design, and more. My most unique skill is having a good eye for design while being strong on the technical side.

With many successful projects under my belt, I’ve learned to adapt to project requirements and technologies at a lightning pace. As a result, I hold a wide array of skills, including back-end development. At this point in my career, I’m confident across the whole stack which makes me excited. I’m able to solve more problems than ever before. I’ve created full-stack applications with WordPress, Laravel, PHP, and more.

Adaptability is my strength and that shows when the first project roadblock hits. One thing I noticed about some developers is that they aren’t business focused. This is where I differ. I like seeing clients succeed as a result of my work. Technical SEO, page speed performance, and ensuring successful content marketing are what I prioritize on top of a well-functioning application.

If you’re here, you must be interested in my work. The meat and potatoes are on this page, but you can also check out my projects. I also create content which you can find on my blog.

I am open to remote opportunities with a preference for front-end heavy work.

Breathr.io – Build Your Meditation Practice One Day at a Time

About Them

Breathr.io aims to encourage daily meditation as a habit by providing an intuitive timer, time tracking, and the ability to find any kind of relaxing video you want. Breathr was originally inspired by calm.com. Unlike calm, I wanted the core app to be simple with the ability to search any video you want instead of a few pre-selected options.

What I Did

Using the powerful React and Redux combo, I was able to create a single page app that is responsive, user-friendly, and creative. The web app currently hooks up to two APIs: YouTube and thesaurus. YouTube is utilized in several places to select and control the selected video all from the app's controls. The thesaurus API is used to help users find new video suggestions and explore their horizons.

  • Make an interface that is friendly on all device widths
  • Create a design and UX that is easy to use while handling a growing feature set
  • Learn how to effectively use Redux with React

What I Did

Originally built as a WordPress site that became dated, I used Vue.js to reimagine the whole app from the client's design files. As a result, Fixd Repair has a fully functioning responsive web app that successfully connects customers to home repair services.

  • Give the app a modern redesign without losing the intent of the original message
  • Optimize load times and emphasize performance
  • Work effectively under fast-moving business deadlines and project curveballs

What I Did

To make this website come to life, I created a custom WordPress theme tailored to their unique requirements. I used ACF to create a fully customizable interface, granting the client unparalleled flexibility for the site's content needs. The WordPress and PHP code was optimized, ensuring a responsive, swift, and seamless user experience. Recognizing the need for simplicity, I implemented a user-friendly backend, allowing even non-technical team members to edit content.

  • Create a high-performing theme for a content-heavy website
  • Accurately code out the provided mock-ups
  • Allow for easy content editing for non-technical users
  • Work effectively under tight deadlines

Brandon completed the project on time and was able to deliver a great website experience. We had some difficult/non-typical ideas for him to develop and he came through on them. Very happy with his work!

My experience working with Brandon was very positive. He helped me on a variety of client projects and completed them all successfully. In particular, his help on the labelprint.ca forms was invaluable. He helped update a large amount of custom css and javascript on several long web forms to be compatible with the new version of the form plugin's code. I look forward to working with him again.

Great work! We would definitely recommend Brandon to anyone looking for WordPress development.

Chris Edmonds

, Element 74

Fast turnaround of exactly what we needed. Able to work with less than perfect specifications. Worked around a significant technical limitation of the framework that we required him to use in a satisfactory way.

Andrew Magruder

I like how I'm able to edit the backend values myself, it's intuitive and didn't take too long to figure out. This is just what we needed, thank you Brandon.
