Featured Work

Website Design And Development

I started designing and developing websites in 2000 during graduate school. My first website was the Graduate Student Senate website and from there I have designed and developed dozens of websites for clients and myself, including some pro-bono websites for worthy causes. In the beginning it was pure html coding by hand. Over the years, I have made the transition to the Adobe Creative Suite - CS6. I programmed a few flash websites when that was the coolest thing that you could do. And now, I'm working with HTML5 and CSS3 to do all of the fancy programming things us programmers do to wow and make websites pop. For most of my new clients, I create fully customized and mobile responsive websites using WordPress. This allows clients to maintain their own websites and to allow me to use my skills elsewhere. I've done websites from beginning to end, although in website development there is no end, there is always something to maintain, update, and monitor.

My website design and development work is more than just programming the structure and functionality. I am a designer and the look and feel of a website is an extremely important part of my work. I do everything including graphic design and writing content. With my business and writing experience I am able to help customers develop their message. A business or organization's website is often the 1st impression that they make with a current or potential client so it is essential that customers can easily find the information that they are looking for.

Website Design and Development has changed quite a bit over the years so not only is content important, but every website I design and develop is responsive and mobile friendly. And every website is built with search engine optimization in mind. Designing websites is another creative outlet for me. I enjoy programming and making something come alive from nothing.

Obviously, in the last ten years websites have become an essential part of business and marketing strategies. I start my website design and development work from a marketing perspective, so I also work with clients on growing their customer database and tying in their website to their social media presence. Websites must be fully integrated with a business' overall vision and objectives. Knowing what customers want and expect online and making sure it is consistent with the brick and mortar business is critically important. Both parts must work together flawlessly otherwise customers will question the competence of a company. My detailed understanding of website design and development in additional to understanding business and marketing strategies and plans, allow me to deliver added value to my clients. It is always great to be able to help a client develop their message and to highlight their core competencies so that their website and business will be successful.
