What We Do
As a Shopify partner and Shopify Expert I have built several private apps to enhance stores that I manage. I also manage several stores, helping to improve the user experience, enhance profitability and reduce what customer service agents have to do to handle orders..
Develop, maintain and enhance PHP based websites and Shopify storefronts
Shopify site design and management
VitaMist retail site
Developed and maintained the VitaMist retail site on shopify.
After managing the previous iteration of the site, which was run on Volusion, I proposed a move to Shopify. The new site is designed to integrate with the VitaMist business model using custom Apps. I manage the site, handling SEO, products and apps. I regularly update and review each aspect of the site, ensuring that it is held to modern techniques, current technologies and best practices with SEO. This process has brought the ecommerce conversion rate from under 1% to nearly 2%, higher than the comparible industry average.
VitaMist is the original manufacturer of VitaMist Spray Vitamins.
KitCore Labs site
Developed and maintained the KitCore Labs site on shopify.

My Friend Bill retail site
Developed and maintained the My Friend Bill retail site on shopify using print on demand technology to allow zero inventory for this T-Shirt and accessory store
USPS lookup and cleaning Shopify App
This app is a private app written to help our customer service agents handle orders in Shopify.
This app will take the shipping and billing address of the selected order and process it through the USPS API to clean up and prepare the address according to USPS requirements for accurate mailling.
Team member referral tracking Shopify App
This app is a private app written to act as part of an affiliate style system that tracks our team member retail referrals.
All the existing apps for affiliate marketing assistance in the app store were designed to include payouts, and since VitaMist uses an internal, custom software package to handle commissions, we couldn't use them.
This system allows Team Members to be given a specific snippet to add to the end of URLs on the VitaMist retail site. When a customer comes to the site via a url with this snippet it tags them with a cookie that will mark them as a customer of the referring team member. If the customer subsequently places an order it modifies the customers note and the orders note with a notation to let Customer Service know that it was a referral order.
