I am a freelance website designer and developer located in Santa Cruz, CA. I live in the South County area on a 40 acre piece of property in the mountains. Rural living with a high speed connection suits me well.
I am a passionate photographer, nature lover, wild mushroom hunter, drummer, and love to learn and create. It is these passions that have led me to design and build web sites.
I currently use open source software for developing websites and have gravitated towards WordPress as a Content Management System and Magento E Commerce for developing online retail stores. Both of these programs can deliver almost any type of website that you desire. My reasons for choosing these are many but at the top of the list are ease of use for my clients and the ability for myself to rapidly develop a great site.
I want to personally thank you for your visit to my corner of the web and taking the time to look around. This site has been a journey of learning, creativity, frustration and joy and is in continuous development. I hope someday I can look back and see that I have made a place that has served others, contains useful information and possibly share a bit of what I have learned about the online world.
