About me

my story

Becoming a freelancer was not something I considered when I started back to school and began wittling away at my second degree. It just kind of happened.

It started shortly after I graduated in 2013. A friend and I started helping several local small businesses with their web related needs.

Now as a freelance web developer I provide a cost-effective development option for businesses, non-profits, and other freelance professionals.

Web Development

HTML5, CSS3, WordPress, Squarespace
It is of the utmost importance to consider how your website will function. Behind all the gorgeous content is the source code doing what it's supposed to do? Are your potential customers being directed to your contact page properly? These are just a couple of the infinite number of questions to consider when developing a site and I can help you every step of the way.

Responsive Web Design

HTML5, CSS3, Photoshop
It is always in your best interest to consider how your website's content will look on multiple devices big or small. Do you have a "Call To Action" and is it being attractively displayed? Does the content on your site, such as text and images look amazing on a monitor and just as impressive on a mobile device? If not, get in touch with me and we'll make sure it does.

Email Templates

These days email marketing is something almost every business should be looking into, especially if you have a customer base you can use to create an email list. Then you'll want to plan out an emailing campaign, create some beautiful email templates and send them my way. Like lightning, I'll work my coding fingers and build a pixel perfect magnificinetly functioning template.
Graphic Services

Image Editing

JPEG, PNG, GIF, 2D Vectors
A little touch up here, a little touch up there! Need some cropping, text or maybe a few colors changed? Need your images sized down or optimized to decrease your website's loading speed. You name it, I'll do it.

Graphic Design

Photoshop, Illustrator
I do not consider myself a graphic designer, I leave all the heavy lifting to professionals I enjoy collaborating with. BUT, I still get requests from customers who have always been satisified with my graphic design work. I've even done a book cover or two you can see below.


RAW, 4k, Subjects and Products
Photography is a hobby more so than something I do professionally. But I love it and have a passion to continue to become better! Similiar to my graphic design work, if you're on a budget but you still want high quality results I'm always trying hard to deliver. See some photos below.
