Who I am
Hey! I'm Willson, a front-end developer, ux developer, and former Creative Technologist at Shopify. I have a passion for building high-quality, fun experiences on the web. I like to experiment and build things that stretch my abilities.
I worked for 8 years at Shopify where I spent my time as a Senior Creative Technologist building prototypes and custom UI that enabled my teams to make quick decisions on what projects to pursue and accelerated development when projects started.
I grew up with the company and built products that enabled people to run their business on the internet. This work was important to me because it enables Shopify merchants to take control of and design their own lives on their own schedule.
Today I'm taking a little break. I'm taking some time to figure out what I want to do and who I want to be. I can be found building silly things and having fun. I'm always open to new opportunities and challenges. If you'd like to chat, feel free to reach out. I'm always happy to talk.
I'm passionate about building accessible, performant, and delightful web experiences. I'm also a big fan of the web platform and the open web. This website is built with Web Components and Lit.
