About me

Experienced. Capable.

My Background

I have an extensive background in website design, having worked at several leading interactive agencies and companies in Boston over the past twenty years.

Working with brands such as Fidelity, FedEx, AT&T Wireless, and Reuters, I studied customers interacting with live websites, learned user experience best practices, and developed leading-edge web designs for these companies. 

Now I can bring those same methodologies to your business at an affordable price. 

I live with my family on the south shore of Boston and serve clients in the greater Boston area and beyond. Distance is no issue as all work is done remotely.

My Process

I believe that putting together a website is more than just creating some pages and adding some text. A truly effective website is the result of thoughtful consideration of the customers who will visit, and what they need and want from the site. It should also stem from a deep understanding of what drives your business’ success.

When I first engage with you, I take steps to ensure I understand your business, your brand, your goals, and your customer. From there, I’ll partner with you to ensure that everything we do supports those goals.

Whether we are creating a site from scratch, redesigning what you already have, or simply adding some new content, I view everything through the same customer lens, and believe that attention to even the smallest detail leaves a lasting impression.
