Service Offerings

Comprehensive Service Listing

I specialize in building websites that are fast, easy to use, optimized for search engines, and cross-browser compatible. But there’s more to it than that. Here’s the full detailed list:

  • Website Design and Development

    • Cross-browser, mobile friendly code using progressive enhancement techniques

      I am passionate about writing clean, semantic code, and use progressive enhancement techniques to make websites function without JavaScript and/or CSS support. This means my websites will work on both your phone and your desktop PC. My websites are always tested in Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome.

    • PHP web apps — both framework-based and from scratch

      There’s tons of excellent code out there that’s already written, free, and is supported by thousands of power users who continuously find ways to improve it. Why pay for pricey software when you can leverage that power? In many cases, I have found that open source provides a better solution than expensive software solutions. Need something the open source community can’t provide? I can solve the problem! I love writing PHP myself, an extremely popular and free platform for writing web applications. PHP has been used for many huge websites such as Facebook.

    • WordPress / OpenCart integration

      Enjoy the power and flexibility of WordPress for content management and OpenCart for the online shopping cart. I specialize in integrating the two frameworks. You’ll end up with a WordPress theme used across your site and a completely separate install of both frameworks, that can be updated to their latest versions—for security and bug-fix reasons.

    • Search engine optimization (SEO)

      I work to maximize your rankings on search engines so that your customers find you much more easily. This includes writing semantic, search engine optimized code, and also making recommendations for how content should be written and structured if you want to update your website in the future.

    • Content management system (CMS) integration

      CMS systems allow you to maintain your site without being a web guru. A common CMS solution is the popular blog and CMS software WordPress. CMS systems provide a word processor-like interface for editing content that requires very little training to use.

    • Web maintenance

      If you don’t have time to keep your website up to date, why not let me do it? Most updates can be made within 1-2 days.

    • Animated HTML5 elements

      Animation can add visual interest to your site and draw the user in so that more visitors stay on your site and read about what you have to offer them.

  • XHTML/CSS Development

    Got a design but need someone to make it ready for the web? I strive for the cleanest, most easily maintainable code I can write, while meeting W3C standards and thinking about SEO from the first line of code written to the last.

  • Mobile and Rich Internet Applications

    Easy to use, great-looking web apps that simplify tasks for your staff and/or customers and impress them at the same time.

  • Brand Identity Development and General Graphic Design

    This includes logos, company style guides, letterheads, brochures, bulk mail materials, and more.

  • Product Photography

    I shoot well-lit photos that accurately represent your products and make them look their best
