Freelance web developer

I create digital experiences

Hey, I'm Orry!

I am a web developer based in Toronto, Canada. I have 4+ years of experience in the industry, working in full-time, freelance, and team lead roles. I enjoy working on large applications within a team environment as much as I enjoy owning the entire development cycle of a freelance project. My goal as a developer is to to deliver fast, attractive, and accessible websites, with clean code, ZERO bugs, and to always build on my skills in the process. I primarily build hand-coded websites using Javascript, but I love the power of CMS platforms and will leverage with them whenever an opportunity arises.

Let's build something together!

    Highlands Cabin Reservation Platform

    The team at Highlands Music Festival recognized a blocker in the music festival ticket purchase process, where potential festival attendees were hesitant to buy a ticket without know if they would be in the same cabin as their friends/partners. Within hours of launching the platform, ticket sales increased and 90% of attendees had made cabin reservations, deeming the project a huge success. The solution was to build a platform that allows attendees to log in, and reserve a specific bed in a specific cabin for everyone in their group. The biggest technology highlight in the project is Airtable, which we use as both a CMS and as a database.

    Checkout Page

    My client recognized that potential attendees would be more inclinced to purchase a ticket to their event if payments were spread out over a few months. The request was to use Stripe, and to provide customers with two payment options on the checkout page: To pay for a ticket in full, or to pay for a ticket in 4 instalments over a three month period. Using the Stripe API, I built the checkout page from scratch to allow for the two payment options. I used Contentful CMS to schedule changes to price as the festival grew nearer.

    Shoppers Drug Mart

    I worked at Loblaw Digital full time for 3.5 years, where I grew from a Dev I (junior developer) to a Senior Developer. I was fortunate to work with a talented team that taught me the importance of clean and scaleable code, performance, testing, and accessibility, and eventually I took the reigns of being a tecnical team lead. My feature highlights in that time include rebuilding the checkout, product listing, and landing pages, integrating Contentful into our CMS pages, and building an order tracker.

    A project for a freelance client, Nora Camps, who is an artist selling her paintings online. On this project, I operated as the tech lead with one other developer.

    Pashion Pilates

    A freelance project for a pilates instructional video subscription website in Toronto. My clients at Pashion Pilates had been giving instructional pilates videos through Instagram, and they wanted to build a subscription website where members can join to pay for their services. We used Vimeo for video hosting and playback, and MemberSpace for authentication, payments, and membership management. We also used my favorite CMS - Contentful - for content management.

    Highlands Music Festival

    This project was extra special because I was a member of the co-founding committee of this musical festival. I worked with the marketing team and a graphic designer to build a website that aimed to provide information about the festival and to drive traffic to the Eventbrite ticketing page. I owned the entire development cycle which included hosting, domain configuration, site development, deployments, and email alias setup. I would also track user engagement during times of heavy traffic, specifically when we launched ticket sale prices.
