Relax, we've got this.

Are you overwhelmed, frustrated, or just don’t know where to start? Take the stress out of creating or updating your website. From philanthropic foundations and wildlife rescuers to artists and solopreneurs, I’ve helped dozens of organizations and individuals broaden their audiences and enhance engagement with clean, functional and usable websites.

Experience, Reliability, Dedication

I’ve been building website since 1995, using many different tools and platforms. About 15 years ago, I settled on WordPress as an ideal solution for my and my clients’ needs, and now I know it so thoroughly that colleagues often call me to help with their own issues. WordPress sites are built with beautiful and clean code, the best SEO structure (Google loves WordPress!), almost infinite scaling,  and are supported by the most dedicated and hard-working community in the world. (WordPress was founded more than 15 years ago by folks who believe in bringing democracy to the web, and  still work tirelessly to make that a reality!) Best of all, you can update much of the basic content of your website yourself.

Everything you need for your site

Do you need a simple “calling card” website, a WordPress theme facelift, or a custom storefront? A way to register your members, keep track of volunteers, sell tickets, take donations? A new website can automate all that and make it simpler for you!

I have experience in front-end development, UX design, e-commerce solutions, trouble-shooting WordPress issues, content development, image processing, logo design, and much more. I taught freshman comp for several years, so I can tighten up the grammar and style of your web copy, I can mix audio, and I dabble in video editing, so chances are, I’ve got you covered.

I’ve worked with Allison on multiple web projects over the years. She also makes great suggestions about how to fix things both aesthetically and technically. I always feel she has my best interests in mind which makes me trust her opinions and work emphatically.

Since many of my clients are musicians and artists, I’m also happy to be able to create print designs for CD packaging or other promotions with a minimum of fuss. As with my websites, I take my design cues from the individual sensibility of each client.

 

About Me

Like a lot of people in my generation, I didn’t start out in tech. When I got out of grad school I knew a lot about literature and coffee, but it turned out that those cushy tenure-track jobs we’d been promised had pretty much dried up. So we took all those writing, learning, and analytic skills, along with boundless creativity and curiosity, and started teaching ourselves useful new languages, like html and css. Those of us who were visually oriented also started learning about the new graphic design technologies that were becoming available to everyone.

I started building websites as a sideline while I worked in a record store, for a women’s chorus, and at a radio station. Eventually I started freelancing and never looked back. I still do graphic design for CD packaging (remember CDs?) and other print projects, and I still occasionally do radio shows, both live and (during the pandemic) pre-mixed. In my spare time I enjoy crafting, container gardening on my balcony, and baking.

I’m located in the idyllic little town of Point Richmond.
