Website Design & Development
I am not accepting new clients at this time.
Many clients come to me with an older website they maintain. In most cases, they want to update the design to be mobile-friendly with a more modern look. I collaborate with them to design a new look and feel that allows them to still maintain the content. Read more about my Design services …
Functionality (including contact forms, PayPal interfaces, product databases, etc.) can improve a visitor's website experience. I help clients improve existing capabilities.

Back in 2011, this client — a small business owner who produces energy reports for builders seeking compliance with California's Title 24 regulations — asked me to update her website's design and streamline the code.

As the webmaster for this site, I add the content the client provides. Mostly, the content consists of new articles and updates to keep the site fresh and meaningful to visitors. Because the code is streamlined, there's no extra overhead. That means pages load quickly, content presentation is consistent across the site, and visitors can find what they need.
