Lives In Portland

I love working with clients who are excited to learn how to better their online presence through strategy and design. I create a vision and plan for client's website, social media presence and inbound marketing setup to turn the web into an asset for small business owners. My company specializes in WordPress design and development, but we occasionally take on other CMS projects. My services range from start to finish involvement, design or development only aspects, Inbound marketing, consulting or any combination of my capabilities in digital media and beyond.

Outside work I surf, play music, make art, spend time with my family, enjoy Portland's incredible restaurants and bars, dig in my veggie garden and roll out on a yoga mat.

Why did you choose Portland? Being from North Carolina originally and having lived in Boston for a few years, Portland seemed to be a good middle ground. Awesome restaurants and bars, friendly people and amazing natural surroundings-who could ask for more?

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Bard Coffee. Also can be seen at Central Provisions downstairs.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? The determination of the creative community to make Portland known for high quality, innovative ideas and work.
