About

After a long career in the corporate IT industry working mainly for IBM, I took early retirement to be self-employed providing website services to help individuals, small and local businesses.

I created e-shop designer back in 2012 to help users of the Ecwid e-commerce platform style their shopfronts more easily. Back then, Ecwid was fairly new and and didn't have all the features available today.

In 2013 I added the "Tweak" service to help simplify the creation of Ecwid CSS Themes or modify the e-shop designer themes.

In 2015, when Ecwid started supporting Apps, I added the Theme Designer App to connect the e-shop designer website into the Ecwid Control panel.

In 2016 I released the Tabber app to add tabs to product descriptions.


Ecwid has evolved and improved a lot since its early beginnings, and e-shop designer is now rather old, out-dated and complicated to use. This prompted me to completely re-think the service and create the new "Decorator" app.

In 2016 I began working on a new Decorator App.

In May 2017 The new decorator App went live

In Feb 2020 Theme Designer App reached end of life and in no longer available or active. Active users migrated to Decorator App or Custom CSS.

In May 2020 Added a version of Tabber App (tabber-rs) for use by Ecwid partner sites like Wix and Duda who don't allow app subscription payments through Ecwid

In Feb 2021 Announced the end of life for Decorator App scheduled for April 2022. Custom CSS is available for paid customers to keep their styling after end of life.
