web portfolio


Style.  Clarity.  Ease of use.

I create affordable, custom websites that are clean and uncluttered, user-friendly, and focused squarely on your message and your content.

Your site's features can include image galleries, multimedia, or third-party tools such as eCommerce systems, email contact managers — whatever you need to communicate to your target audience.

I also build custom WordPress websites, allowing you to easily update your site yourself. I can build you a WordPress site from scratch, or convert your current site to WordPress.

If you've outgrown an old website, consider a redesign to update your look and include the features you want.

I can help with information design, copy editing, optimizing your content for search engines, and more.

Contact me any time to discuss your project.

WordPress Customization


WordPress is a free and flexible framework I can use to create a website that you can maintain yourself.

Originally designed for creating blogs, WordPress is now used for all kinds of sites all across the Web.

If you already have a website, I can convert it into a WordPress site, allowing you to keep your current design while taking full advantage of all the user-friendly site maintenance features that WordPress offers.
