About

I build websites for businesses and professionals.

I specialize in building high-quality, scalable code to power websites for businesses and professionals. I create customized, simplified WordPress websites which can be easily maintained & manipulated by other developers and even beginners.
 

With a background in creative arts & marketing, I like to work directly with clients to create collaborative experiences for consumers that excite, inform, engage, & convert.

 
I also like creating content, including photographing campaigns (model/product/editorial) to produce materials for web & print, creating email blasts & graphics, marketing through both SEO (search engine optimization) efforts and more traditional mediums alike.
