Short answer, I design and build WordPress powered websites for people, companies and organizations of all shapes and sizes – here there and everywhere.
I create websites that my clients can easily update themselves using the WordPress platform. This means that with nothing more than a web browser, you can upload images/videos, add articles, modify text, and more – without hiring me again. This creates great value for my clients, and allows me to focus on what I like to do best – build great websites with WordPress. I build every site from scratch, so each is truly custom fit to the client, design, and needs. I’ve written a few plugins, and spend my days up to my eyeballs in WordPress, still learning new things everyday.
I moved to Vermont in 1996 to attend Castleton State College. Once there I was unable to resist the siren song of the mountains and the joys of snowboarding. Supporting my new full-time snowboarding habit led to great jobs working in the resort industry; season’s pass sales, assistant innkeeping, bartending, more bartending, and then a year-round position selling ski vacations.
During a painfully slow summer selling ski vacations I taught myself HTML using Notepad. This was 1999, but web development quickly became a passion for me and I spent my evenings learning more and freelancing.
Shortly after that slow summer, I took a job at a digital print shop in southern Vermont operating its large and small format printers and performing pre-press duties. I later became manager, with responsibility for improving workflow and managing the company website.
I went on to become a founding partner of Ditto!, a unique combination of a printing company and a multi-disciplinary design firm. A year of operating a Heidelberg GTO instilled a technical understanding of and greater appreciation for the craft of printing. I mixed ink, stripped film, made plates, and can operate a stitcher, a paper cutter, a right angle folder and just about any other piece of printing machinery I can find. I still use this experience today to help my clients with printed solutions.
Fast forward to today, I’ve been focused exclusively WordPress web development for 9 years and loving every moment of it. I love what I do, and enjoy great relationships with wonderful clients – for this I am truly thankful.
