What my clients think of my work
Kelvin is a conscientious and knowledgeable developer with a deep understanding of search. We had an issue with our ElasticSearch implementation which had us scratching our heads. Not only did Kelvin resolve our issue but he suggested and implemented improvements to our build process which have made a big difference to our setup. I would have no hesitation calling upon Kelvin again in the future.
As the founder, CEO, solo developer, and chief bottle washer at LicketyTrip, I knew that the site desperately needed a spiffier search experience, but I could never find the time to learn ElasticSearch and do it myself. Enter Kelvin, who took my spec, ran with it, and turned around just what I was looking for in a matter of days. Kelvin asked great questions, made helpful suggestions, and produced a much better end result than I could have done myself in a fraction of the time. LicketyTrip now indexes over 100k last minute vacation rentals a day, and my users and I couldn't be happier. Thanks, Kelvin!
Kelvin is an extremely productive thinker with deep domain knowledge in search technology. His swiftness, combined with a commitment to complete tasks on a very short deadline ensured that our project was accelerated by months. I would unequivocally recommend him to anyone undergoing a project related to search technology.
