Miva is a single-tenant, cloud-based, hybrid-SaaS ecommerce platform. Here are the two common situations customers find themselves in before moving to Miva.

1. You have an open source ecommerce solution that is unstable, requires a lot of security patches/maintenance and is hard to manage.

2. You have a simple SaaS ecommerce solution that isn't flexible enough for your business. You've tried dozens of third-party plugins, apps and services but can't quite make it work like you want.

Miva's solutions are the perfect blend of flexible and stable. Our software has logic for complex business rules and a robust templating engine for custom front-end experiences.

Solutions Architecture

As an eCommerce Solution Architect at Miva I consult with businesses that are replatforming, redesigning their websites or integrating their business systems. We start with an analysis of the business’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. Then we define the requirements of the new and improved eCommerce website. Finally, we work with an eCommerce project manager to align resources for a successful implementation.


In 2017 I began speaking at conferences and events about trends in eCommerce at MivaCon17.


I enjoy sharing what I’ve learned via YouTube and Udemy.


Paid Off is a new book that I’m writing about paying off student loans.
