This is my development site directed towards those in the development world who are looking for my services. Small businesses can find my work here at Daniels Web Design.

Since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020 I have been developing my front end and back end web development skills. During this time I have taken a JS Bootcamp, finished two CSS HTML/CSS certifications, a Bootstrap certification and an advanced CSS/SASS certification to complement my Wordpress usage. I am currently learning PHP so that the sites I am developing can be setup on the Wordpress platform.

Directed the marketing and daily operations of three restaurants with locations in Grand Central Terminal in New York City and Long Island, as well as a catering division, each worth $3M in annual revenue. Substantially increased reservation counts by implementing an OpenTable reservation system that allowed access to reservation bookings remotely. Installed a POS System with an Aloha NCR iPhone app that provided real-time monitoring of all locations to identify menu items that were top and low sellers. Increased repeat business with a new VIP Program that awarded a point for each dollar spent, and $25 off a meal once 400 points were reached. This program was used to grow the email marketing list of the business. Collaborated with Orphmedia in building the company website 'shiroofjapan.com'.
