Learn About Me
Hi, my name is Ryan and I'm a Freelance Web Designer & Full Stack Developer.
I started writing code in 2016. I enjoy learning as much as I can, which is why I take a lot of online courses, watch youtube videos, and read a variety of articles related to software development. Not only frontend and backend development, but things like how to set up your servers, app architecture, scalability, security, etc.
I love playing sports and being active basketball, golf, in the summer, and a little skiing in the winter. I also like to go to the gym a couple times a week.
What I do
Being creative is a passion of mine. I have a great attention to detail and have worked in the design space professionally for almost 10 years. The best part is the people, and figuring out how their brand represents them.
I can build you any type of website or app that your heart desires. Something elegant, performant, that will drive results back into your bottom line. I write clean, well documented, reusable code that can scale. Architecture is everything.
Assigning tasks to junior developers and making sure they complete their tasks on time. Review their code on Github with them, just to make sure their code is clean and error free. Lead the SCRUM meetings.
Top Cherry Designs is a freelance company that I founded in 2017, which started as more design related work, that quickly trasnformed into web development and programming.
I've built many types of websites and applications under this name. You can see samples of my works below.
