About Me

It all started in 1998

About MeMy first site launched when I was just a high school student. It was an online care guide for reptiles. During its final years, it was a Google top-ranking site using popular search criteria.

I've since made educational sites for kids, online stores, more online guides, and even a Blink-182 fansite once acknlowedged by the band.

Now, over a decade later, I continue by making websites for clients like you. For me, it's not just a job. It's also an ongoing hobby and passion.

Web Development

Building Websites

Web DevelopmentI use strict, valid HTML and CSS, along with javascript, jQuery, and PHP to write cross-browser, SEO-friendly code. I admire standards, usability, and anything open-source. I test in IE7-9, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome.

I have experience with FTP, Putty, SSH-SS, .htaccess, cPanel, MySQL, and PhpMyAdmin. I can even help with getting a host, setting up material you already have, tweaking graphics, etc. For medium to large projects, I use the Content Management Systems Drupal and Wordpress.

With fun and functional technologies at my disposal, I'll do my best to give you the features that you need.

Web Design

Designing Websites

Web DesignI take on the dual role of developer and designer. In addition to coding, which is my primary specialty, I've also stepped up to design.

From clean and minimalistic, to grungy and quirky, I'm willing to expand my design skills and try just about anything. I strive to teach myself, and my goal is to improve my knowledge of user-oriented interface design.

My experience with designing and coding Drupal layouts is improving everyday, and I'm also very interested in mastering Wordpress themes.

Social Identity

Branding of Social Networks

Social Network BrandingSocial networking and media are more important than ever. It is essential that any serious business have an active presence on the most well known of these services, and a professional presence should be followed up with a professional appearance. Custom graphics for your Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, or similar profiles is the way to achieve this.

Consistent branding and customization across these social media profiles can help create a sense of continuity with your company's online image. From Facebook Timeline covers and custom HTML tabs, to Twitter backgrounds, Youtube backgrounds, Etsy banners, and even Tumblr page layouts. I can help. If I haven't mentioned it here, feel free to ask. I'd be glad to help.

Graphic Design

Pushing Pixels

Graphic DesignI had an interest in pencil illustration in my youth. While that was replaced mainly with science and computers as I aged, I've found that digital graphic design allows me to tap into that interest once again.
