Fine Web Applications

About

  • My Business

    I design and develop engaging sites and apps for mobile, tablet, desktop and beyond that are simple to use and accessible to everyone.

    Many of my clients are small-medium businesses that prefer a custom WordPress setup, but I've also worked on large scale applications, such as Amazon's App Store.

    The products I build adhere to web accessibility guidelines and standard SEO practices.

  • Evolve

    Everything is always changing, especially in the web industry, so I'm constantly learning to stay on top of the latest technologies. I like to use lots of fancy tools (i.e. Grunt, Git, CSS preprocessors, see more below) that help me work faster and more effectively.

    I write durable code that will stand the test of time. I will not load your site up with tons of 3rd party plugins built by people I don't know. I only use libraries developed by trusted sources.

  • Relationships

    My goal is to create lasting relationships. When you hire me, I've got your back, I'm in your corner and I'm proud to attach my name to the product we create together.

    I believe in quality - getting what you pay for. I'm honest and upfront about what's available and what you need. I don't expect my clients to know about building websites -- that's why you hired me! I will guide you through the process and educate you on everything you'll need to know when your site is ready to launch.
