Design-savvy Website Development for Design Professionals

You design. I advise and code — including integration with a customized content management system — and provide friendly training videos. We win (including the client)!

Let me support, extend, and improve what you offer to your clients.*

I have a formal design education and have been working on the web professionally since 1999. I know a lot, am learning more all the time, and also know what I don’t know (if you know what I mean).

Content management is not a commodity, and I take great pride in Craft-ing the CMS experience to streamline site editing; client-collaborators (and their clients) love the video tutorials I create that make training a breeze and completely portable.

If we’re using a sitebuilder like Squarespace you can even hand off some design responsibilities to me. Let me “rough out” the first pass and then you can art-direct the process.

* someone told me I should point out that I don’t try to poach clients, as if I’d even think about doing that
