About Me

Someone you can count on.
For 20 years, I've made clients very happy by always doing exactly what I say I will do, on time and under budget.

Business first approach.
As a business owner, I understand that you have a vision for the future and need someone who can act on that vision and take your site to a much higher level. This is important.

Accessible & flexible.
When you call for help, I'll respond ASAP. If I'm not available at the moment you contact me, I'll email or call back quickly. If I'm not familiar with a particular component in your website, I'll learn the technology to solve your problem.

A full service shop.
In addition to new site development, much of the work I do consists of making improvements to existing websites. Typical projects include website redesign, eCommerce, PHP & database stuff, website apps, Wordpress integration, updates & upgrades, content edits, copy, graphics, error troubleshooting, and SEO.

Reasonably priced.
Great websites aren't cheap. I avoid surprises with careful planning, specifying and documentation. My rate is competitive and I offer free estimates on almost all projects. Ultimately, it's about getting what you pay for and I'm consistently a damn good deal.

Website Services

Custom Web Design

We've all heard the cliché 'think outside the box'. Well, most websites are literally boxes within boxes. I'll help you be different.

Search Engine Optimization

A boost in search engine rankings will lead to more customers & sales. I use safe, white hat SEO techniques to improve Google rankings.

Website App Development

Website apps work on a smartphone without the need to install an app and can connect to your database or be tools that work for YOU in some way.

Web Site Maintenance

Content edits, new features and functions, updates to Wordpress, layout mods, & more. 99% of sites are never really finished.

APIs & 3rd Party Apps

I integrate 3rd party programs and APIs into websites. If I'm not already familiar with a particular API, I'll learn it to get the job done.

Website Security

Some simple proactive steps will minimize your exposure and risk. Wordpress site owners take note: 83% of hacked sites are running WP.

Hair Stylist

Mark Hanson

TypeWebsite Redesign

Year2019


Mark Hanson is a Hair Stylist working out of Eccentric Hair Salon in Hampton, NH. I helped Mark better understand who he should be marketing his site toward and then selected some stock photography to convey a look and feel to appeal to them. I modified his logo to be more balanced and work with his new message & photos and target audience.

Extra attention was paid to the site's standings on search engines and I was able to help generate more traffic, leading to more customers...which was the whole point to begin with. More could be done to continue with Mark's SEO but for the short money spent on this project, a lot was accomplished.

Product Distributor

Richard Dean Associates

TypeWebsite Redesign

Year2018


Richard Dean Associates is a manufacturers' rep firm for the professional AV/MI markets. Their previous site was a number of years old and needed to be redesigned to use responsive web design technology and to include some new features.

I came up with a design that maintained the inegrity of their brand and original site, with subtle but very deliberate modifications that improved the user experience, had much more visual appeal, and allowed the client to edit just the specific content they regularly edit, such as companies with which they do business.

HVAC Products Manufacturer

Cambridgeport

TypeWebsite Redesign

Year2019


Cambridgeport manufactures high-quality rooftop HVAC products at their factory in Georgetown, MA. Their specialty is the curb adapter, which allows you to place your new HVAC unit into the same hole in the roof that your old HVAC unit sat in, without having to do a bunch of extra structural and carpentry work; simply attach the adapter to the roof curb and then your new HVAC unit will mount right up to the adapter.

I redesigned the look and feel of the site, improved responsive web design layout, updated product imagery, added some animated graphics, reworded much of the text and simplified as much of the user experience as possible with a Bootstrap foundation. The site contains a product search, where you can select your old HVAC unit and new HVAC unit and the app returns the appropriate curb adapter. When I first received this project, it was coded in old school ASP and used an MS Access database for storage. I converted the data to a MySql database and rebuilt the product searches with PHP. Also, I determined that there was a relationship between the curbs and the curb adapters that allowed me to reduce the overall size of the database by 90%. That meant there is now 90% less data for Cambrdgeport to have to maintain, a significant time savings for them. Plus, there's been a huge improvement in website speed.

Genealogy Site

EB Roy's Family Tree

TypeDatabase Driven Website Development

Year2019


This is a very interesting site I made for a private person. Using their Ancestry.com ged file, I converted the data into a MySql database and then built a bunch of PHP & JavaScript features around that database and the site is now a full fledged custom family tree app.

There is a dynamic family tree that updates as you click through the various people in the tree. Various calculations are made, such as relationship, life span and recursive JavaScript average ancestor life span. In the custom admin, there's an image uploader and optimizer to add ancestor imagery such as photos, documents, etc. Events & records can be added to each person in the tree and then records can be attached to events to be able to document the events. Site includes an ancestor calendar which shows major life events for everyone in the database, a chronological timeline of all events and an ancestor search, linking directly to the corresponding profile.
