I’ve been building and maintaining websites for 18+ years for musicians, artists, photographers, and businesses of all sizes out of Seattle, Wa. 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.
