I’m based out of Seattle, Wa and i’ve been building and maintaining websites for 18+ years for musicians, artists, photographers, and businesses of all sizes. I started learning basic html in 1999 when I took a handful of classes in basic Web Development and built and maintained sites as a hobby until 2008 when I came across WordPress and began working with a video marketing company, iTVk, in Hoboken, New Jersey that used WordPress for delivering video products to their clients. At iTVk I began using the Revolution theme from StudioPress as a starter theme and then moved to the Genesis Framework, when they released it a few years later and focused on using child themes for creating new sites. Using the Genesis Framework I was forced to utilize the framwork’s action hooks and filters and I decided I needed to take a few classes to get a more advanced understanding PHP (the core language that WordPress is built with) and I took 2 years of classes in Web Design and Web Development from Seattle Community College and completed a Certificate program in Web Design in 2013.
I also have a strong background in music and have a bachelor’s degree in Ethnomusicology from the University of Washington. I also taught private guitar lessons for 10+ years, and studied musical temperaments and received certificates in Sound & Music Therapy at the Open Center and The New School in New York.
I enjoy working with businesses of all kinds and sizes and am most interested in working with businesses (or individuals) that are involved in the arts or healing arts industries. Below is a list of areas I specialize in:
- Web Site Maintenance
- WordPress Development
- Genesis Framework Child Theme Development
- Google Apps for Businesses
- Social Media Integration with WordPress
- RSS Feed to Email campaigns
- CRM integration with WordPress
