I help bright, hard-working, creative business owners bring their businesses alive on the web.
I specialize in developing WordPress websites for small businesses. This means I write code for websites. I work with designers and other creative types with strong graphic design and user experience backgrounds to build websites. The end result is a beautiful and functional website for your business.
I’m currently accepting clients through designers and agencies I already work with. If you’re a small business owner and you’d like to work with me, send me a message and I’d be happy to introduce you to one of the firms I currently work with.
A Little Bit About MeI’ve been tinkering around on some kind of computer since 1987. In fact, if you were looking for me around the house growing up, your best bet was to look in the computer room my parents had set up for me. I remember our first computer – an Apple IIgs – and writing my very first BASIC program (in between obsessively playing The Bard’s Tale). It wasn’t long after that I wrote a program to spit out the Fibonacci sequence, as well as a program to take orders at a pizza parlor. In high school, I took classes in Pascal and C, and by then I was sold on the simplicity, order and logic of programming. After graduating from Penn State with a degree in computer engineering, I went to work in the corporate world doing low-level firmware programming in C. But, what I truly longed for was more creativity, more *human* interaction, and more time to develop on a visual, creative platform.
I created a personal blog in 2005 and that’s when I stumbled upon WordPress. I realized that WordPress was an ideal software platform for bringing small businesses to the web. I used it to build my first website for a small business in 2007 and I haven’t looked back! It’s incredibly user friendly – both for me, the designer, and you, the end-user.
Developing websites for passionate business owners is my passion. I love the challenge and journey of designing a website and I especially love the relationships I form when I work with entrepreneurs and business owners.
