Freelance Web Developer
As a freelance web developer I have worked with a number of clients on a variety of different projects. Mainly WordPress and React based websites. I have not died of starvation so I consider myself to be a successful freelancer!
At Kinsta I am tasked with developing and maintaining the WordPress website. So far there has been lots of work towards modernizing templates and giving non developers more control of the website content, including gradually implementing Gutenberg blocks across the site.
