I am currently open to Freelance and Short-term Contract work, ideally around WordPress Custom Development, ReactJS and/or Automation.
I also offer Consulting services to non-profit organisations, to help them save time and money. This is in light of the wastage, for example through duplication of efforts not picked up due to no feasibility study done and many other examples. Further, the very low success rate of IT projects and finally to prevent NPO/NGOs from making the same mistakes I did.
