Web Development

I have been working primarily in WordPress for the last 8 years. I have experience building custom WordPress themes from the ground up, as well as using child themes to modify existing themes. I have used WooCommerce to create multiple e-commerce solutions for clients.

I work closely with other designers to bring their ideas to life. As a designer myself, I understand the importance of aesthetics and matching my websites exactly to the mock-ups I am provided. My themes are always fully customizable. I strive to have all content always editable from the back-end and accessible to the client.

Website Design

My website design process begins with a full analysis of my client’s needs. In order to create the ideal web presence, I need to understand fully what the client’s business is all about, and what purpose their website will be serving.

Once the features and purpose of the website have been determined, I will move on to the visual portion of the design. I am a minimalist by nature, and my website designs will often reflect those sensibilities.

I work with my clients to make sure they are happy with my designs through a series of review periods, and when the design is complete we move to the development stage.
