Hey there! I’m Paolo, a web designer, developer, videographer and visual connoisseur. Glad you’re here. Let’s skip the awkward introductions and clammy handshakes and get right down to business with a friendly virtual bear hug!
When I was 12, working in a burger van, my boss lent me a laptop and encouraged me to go and learn. That kicked off a lifelong passion for web design and visual media. When I was 13, I worked on my first website, and just a few years later I started developing websites professionally.
Then, at age 27, I developed a keen focus for film. It gave me a whole new perspective on creativity. Plus, photos and videos make your website look awesome. That led me to where I am today: a multidisciplinary creator working with all kinds of amazing people to create one-of-a-kind projects.
I’ve spent the last few years freelancing on Upwork and am extremely proud to say that I gained a 100% job success score and a 5-star record. I worked with countless clients through Upwork, and over 100 million users have visited the websites and systems that I’ve developed. But now, when you work with me, there are no middlemen or agencies. You’ll be working directly with me!
The driving force - My family.
In 2020, I married my beautiful wife, Sophie. Soon afterwards, we found out we were expecting our son, Jesse, who was born in April 2021. These two, along with our little fluffy monster Moose, give me all the drive I need to keep doing what I do. I am so fortunate to have found such an amazing partner to share my life and raise a family with.
So, that’s PaoloR in a nutshell! If you’d like to hear more, just get in touch and let’s chat. Can’t wait to get to know you and learn about your project!
What my customers are saying...
Let me start by saying that, if I had to rate Paolo on a 5-star scale, I would give him 10. Hiring this guy is one of the best business decisions I've made in a long time. To say he "exceeded my expectations" would be an understatement.
Those of us in the tech space would consider this "unicorn status" - it's virtually impossible to find someone who excels at both, but he does...Read full review
Paolo is impressive to work with, most notably his professionalism, communication and attention to detail. He has played a dual-role as a designer and developer on a website that combines social media with advanced search functionality.
Up front and throughout the project, Paolo takes the time to understand your requirements so his work is always on point. He is very responsive and even with an 8 hour time zone difference, it is never an issue due to his flexibility.Read full review
We've worked with Paolo on a freelance basis for the last few months and have found him to be a truly outstanding designer. His work has included designing new site features, email templates and advertising material, all of which has been completed to the highest possible standard.
Importantly, he has taken the time to learn about our business needs, which enables him to be able to offer solutions to problems we had not even identified ourselves, making him an asset to the development of our site.Read full review
I hired Paolo to create a website for my business. After having a bad experience with a website design company, I looked for somebody who I felt I could trust in the hope that it would be a more successful outcome. From day one Paolo has absolutely blown me away.
I have come away with a fully functioning website that is better than I ever thought it could be and I am extremely grateful to have had such a smooth and fun process. Paolo is a great person with a true talent.Read full review
