Full Service Web Design

When you work with me to build your website, I partner with local experts like visual designers from within my network, and together we collaborate on a solution that best suits your brand. My studio only takes on the kind of work I feel is better served by a small team of professionals, like us. And if you’re local, we meet you in person. No third party vendors, no offshore labor, no hours on the phone waiting for tech support.

Our goal is simple: Build a platform that performs the way you need it to, so you can focus on what you really care about, which is doing business.

Build to Perform

A website that performs exists to serve your content, not dress it up like a window display. And most importantly, it’s a tool you can use to extend your reach in ways you might not have considered before. My development process starts from the ground up: employing market strategy and user experience design to hand-craft and then hand-code a platform that not only looks sharp but can actually cut down the competition.

Your Very Own A-Team

I’m here to assemble your A-Team. I’m not only the guy with his hands in your code, but I’m also your project coordinator and taskmaster. If we need to bring in specialists like copywriters and print designers to get the job done, my Rolodex includes trusted, local experts who can join our team.

One Dashboard to Rule Them All

Whether you’re a restaurateur like The Maiden in Southie, or a marketing manager overseeing product development at LogMeIn, the powerful WordPress Dashboard can make your life easier. After all—it’s already making the lives of millions of bloggers all around the world easier, so why not you? I can tailor the platform to serve your business’ unique needs, and that way you can get back to work.

Custom Really Means Custom

Every installation starts with a clean slate: no hacked up WordPress themes, no Frankenstein of stitched-together plugins. I cut my teeth in the agency world, where you innovate or die. I don’t like off-the-shelf solutions that only approximate what you dreamed of building. Instead, everything I write or design is custom-built to order.

WordPress Development

You’re nimble, you’re adaptable, and you’re already occupying a niche market. You need a website that’s easy to maintain and offers a lot of utility for your users. And you don’t want to spend a fortune building it. Both small- to- mid-market businesses and established brands are poised to take advantage of the low-cost customization that a platform like WordPress offers, and you don’t need a team of developers to put it together for you.

Forget about wrangling with WordPress themes that are almost what you wanted. Stop wading through a sea of wonky community plugins. Isn’t your time worth something? Why not spend it wisely?

Redesign & Rebranding

Sometimes the best solution is to start fresh. There’s no shame in that. You’ve gone down one direction and you or your users are spent. Now it’s time to take the road less traveled by.

If you have an existing web presence but it’s no longer meeting your expectations, I can help you take the next step. My process is a simple, five-step approach that takes us from Discovery to Deployment in as few as three to four weeks.

Web Consulting

Like any highly technical discipline, the world of web design has its chieftains as well as its charlatans. The trick is deciphering who is what. I, for one, prefer the drab but well-tested to the experimental and flashy. I like technology I can rely on. I try every day to be a foe of obsolescence.

Naturally, my desire to keep things sane makes being a web worker in the 21st century all the more difficult, because I’m up against a daily sea-change, from floods of new software updates to the detritus of new devices to a tentacled mess of new web services the lifecycles of which change faster than I can define them. But that’s my life. It doesn’t have to be yours. Let me do the deciphering for you.

Content Strategy

Full disclosure: my graduate degree is in book and magazine publishing, and I studied English literature way back in my twenties. It’s surprisingly common for battle-tested developers to come from non-computer-science backgrounds—in fact, my academic concentration was in formal poetry, and I happen to write science fiction in my free time.

What does this have to do with you? It means I can speak your language as well as the language of developers. Unlike many of my colleagues, I ended up here accidentally on the way to a totally different career. Content strategy is all about bridging the gap between the message you want to convey and the means of conveyance. Invest in a translator who understands both.

Digital Agency Support

Hey agency neighbors! For years, I’ve served as a trusted, local development resource, providing end-to-end support for agencies all over New England. I can work behind-the-scenes to take the load off your team, or directly interface with your clients and completely manage the technical scope. Don’t be a stranger.

My goal is simple: Build a platform that performs the way you need it to, so you can focus on what you really care about, which is doing business. Don’t hesitate to get in touch. A consultation is free, and we can determine over a quick phone call if I’m a good fit for your project.
