It all started at age 13 when a classmate in middle school introduced me to AOL Memberpages.
At age 20, I landed my first career position as a webmaster. (Do people still use that job title?) Then worked my way up to HTML E-Mail developer, junior web designer, and web designer at various companies.
On July 2013, I went to a web design conference and learned about an up-and-coming web design tool called Webflow. I signed up for the closed beta and was invited into it 2 weeks after and the rest is history.
Even though I'm 38, I still feel like a kid and have lots of things I still want to do in this lifetime to help serve humans in a positive way.
"I work with teams of developers on a daily basis, but none put the care and attention into a project that Nelson does. He accepts every unique and difficult request as a new challenge for his own growth. He does everything he can to make a project successful — from concept, through meticulous design detail, to a frictionless hand-off. I do not exaggerate when I say he is the most thoughtful developer I have ever worked with. Talented, patient, passionate about his craft, and an all-around great guy."
"Nelson has been instrumental in helping us rapidly deploy experiments on our website. He's a fantastic collaborator, and his passion for thoughtful 'no code' solutions has helped our team tremendously."
"Nelson consistently goes beyond the task at hand and fills in the gaps with his extensive web development and Webflow specific knowledge. He really knows how to solve problems and that's one of many reasons I like working with Nelson."
"Nelson is a Webflow master! He brought our design concept to life with beautiful animations and interactions. He was ultra professional and a pleasure to work with and made detailed training videos to teach us how to maintain the site. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for Webflow sites."
You or your team has created a beautiful design in Figma, Sketch, or Adobe XD and now you need someone to help bring it to life. Need help customizing a Webflow template or some fixes for your current project? I'd be happy to help make your website come to life and add custom Webflow interactions and animations.
Are you looking to add automation, memberships, or a community to your Webflow website? I can help with that using Memberstack, Circle, Zapier, and Airtable.
I can help you customize your new Webflow ecommerce website and create custom functions that already natively available to Webflow yet.
There is so much to learn once you step into Webflow. I can help you understand how to build websites in Webflow and the core concepts and fundamentals of web design.
A career in web design is not comfortable or glamourous. It takes many fails to find a bit of success. But I'm here to help you through it with an empathetic heart.
Live streaming can be so much fun but also super stressful. I'll help you learn how to live stream to help you reach your audience.
There is no such thing as a smooth, streamlined process. However, throughout the process, from our first video call to the project handoff, I'll be open and honest with you. I'll make suggestions and give you feedback to create the best possible outcome for everyone.
Instead of trying to give you quick web design solutions, I focus first on listening to you and/or your team. I want to hear and understand your goals. I want to hear the problems you're working hard to solve with your unique approach.
Then we will work together to build a website that will easily explain your brands mission and vision to your future customers.
