I design and develop custom websites for small to medium size businesses and non-profits in the Portland area and beyond. I mainly use WordPress and the StudioPress Genesis Framework for custom themes, but can also work with other WordPress themes and help brand or customize them. I use WordPress for both blogs and as a content manager so that clients can maintain their own websites, and I include WordPress training so they feel comfortable doing that. I also offer SEO optimization, social media, and email marketing services and integration. And if customers already have a website or a psd design, I can help convert those to WordPress. I’m a native Oregonian and I’ve been designing websites since 1998. I am experienced and reliable. There are many examples in my company website portfolio along with customer testimonials.
