I have a strong knowledge of JavaScript especially using React including advanced concepts like hooks, context and high order components and often using GraphQL and Apollo.

Due to my previous experience I also have a strong knowledge ofWordPress and PHP (Laravel). I use Trellis, Bedrock and Sage by Roots to build better WordPress sites faster.
