Experience: 14 Years
Location: Washington, DC
I have been designing and building websites for nonprofits, small businesses and entrepreneurs since 2003. I spent six years working in Washington DC for international associations, where I honed my skills in marketing, communications, membership management, and website management and design.
I provide full-service website design and development, including managed hosting and ongoing technical support and maintenance. I also offer clients SEO services, copy editing, copywriting, email and traditional marketing design and management, and graphic design and printing.
Many of my clients have been with me for close to (or over) a decade, and in that time I’ve been honored to redesign and rebuild a number of their websites multiple times. I started out building sites in pure HTML and CSS, though these days I’ve found that most clients prefer to have a CMS such as Joomla! or WordPress. I also work with a number of email service providers, though my favorite is MailChimp.
