Providing Quality Solutions For A Variety of Businesses
No matter the type of business, providing quality solutions for an improved online presence is my everyday practice. No cookie-cutter techniques are used to get the job done. I keep the same set of standards to ensure all users receive a smooth & rewarding experience. My main area of expertise includes:
I’ve been working in Front-End Development for over 6 years. From concept to code, I modernize professional looking websites using up to date methods such as SCSS, Gulp JS and Bootstrap.
Wireframing, prototyping or full concept designs, I do it all. Whether it’s making banners in Photoshop or creating a fully interactive prototype in Adobe XD, part of my process is giving visual representations to my clients.
One of my specialties is creating fully custom WordPress sites for businesses. This can include developing custom themes & plugins, blogging, security maintenance and best practices for having an impactful WP site.
Staying on top of SEO trends is pivotal to competition. All of my websites are optimized for SEO best practices and industry standards.
