Do you need a website? Does your brand need a refresh? Are you ready to take your online presence to the next level? (Or maybe your strange affinity for beagles brought you here…. mine is named Bailey.)
With all the out-of-the-box solutions out there, websites and apps are designed for everybody, yet none of them are designed uniquely for you. That’s where I come in.
Whether you are looking for a new website, eCommerce solution, video streaming solution, or you just need help but don’t know where to start, I’m here to work with you to find your path and execute your vision. Come take a stroll through my site and see if we are a good fit.
Or, if you’re ready to get started now…
Stuff I’ve Done
One of the great joys and most engaging parts of my work is working one-on-one with clients to execute their unique vision. Every client is special, and their website should reflect that. I’ve designed, branded and launched websites for many small and mid-sized organizations, non-profits and personal brands. Let’s work together to find your own unique and tailored online presence.
Things I Do
With more than 15 years of experience in web development, and 10 years as Creative Director—moving on to become Chief Technology Officer—for a streaming video company, I’ve had to wear many hats. My strength is branding and front-end development using a diverse array of content management systems and frameworks, with strong experience in marketing, hosting and managing server technicians, back-end programming, database management, project management and non-profit fundraising. I do lots of things. And I do those things well.
Website Design & Branding
In today’s world, your website is often peoples’ first impression of your business or your brand. Let’s work together to create an experience that reflects your vision and meets your goals. I’ll also create instructional videos and docs so that you are empowered to update your website in-house.
Do you need a fresh eye to look at your website or business strategies? Having a new perspective can do wonders and get us out of our ruts—and more importantly reinvigorate and reignite your business. Let me know what you’re looking for or where you’re struggling, and we’ll work together to take you to a new level.
Let’s get the word out. We’ll take take a look at where and how you can best reach—and convert—your audience. I can help you with your marketing strategy, review your messaging, get you set up with email marketing, social media marketing, Google Adwords, and design marketing materials.
UI & UX Design
Nothing is more aggravating than a confusing and badly thought-out website. I love creating a user experience that is intuitive, friendly, and seamless. Your visitors should know how to get around your website, and—I dare say—have a pleasant time doing it.
Looking to sell digital products or hard goods online? I’ll help you find the right eCommerce solution for your needs, and most importantly, one that is easy for you to use and scale upward. We can build it using WordPress’s Woocomerce, Squarespace, Shopify, or any other application that you prefer.
Maybe you already have a website, but just don’t have the time to make all those seamingly endless updates to it. Or maybe you need ongoing maintenance. Let me know what you need, and we’ll figure out the best way to work together to make your life easier.
Junk I Know
My skills and proficiencies come from a long and varied career—first as a business owner for a video production and streaming company, then as a freelance contractor for a variety of clients with a diverse set of needs. My knowledge and work experience developed out of necessity—a necessity of understanding the practical application of strategies and technologies in real-world settings. While theoretical knowledge is important, I focus on the practical application of online technologies as a means to directly benefit clients’ business structures, providing desired outcomes and achieving success.
Now here’s the boring stuff:
Server Management (I do the part where I tell the smarter people what to do)
CMS, CRM, & Website Builders
Little Green Light
I’ve spent most of my career as Creative Director—moving on to become Chief Technology Officer—of a small video streaming company in New York City. I left the industry for two years to pursue personal interests and live and practice at a Zen Buddhist Monastery in the mountains of southern California. Since returning to New York in 2019, I’ve used my career experience to help many small and mid-sized businesses fulfill their visions and execute successful online strategies. I love the personal touch of collaborating one-on-one with clients, bringing an idea to life from conception to launch.
I volunteer my time with a couple non-profits, including a Zen Buddhist center here in New York City, and an organization that advocates for racial equity and equality, centering Black transgender and gender non-conforming youth and sex workers.
In my personal time, I can be found riding my bike around NYC with my beagle, Bailey, in my backpack. I’m deeply involved with my Zen Buddhist community and socially engaged spiritual practice. I love the outdoors, and I hope to one day backpack the entirety of the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail.
