My experience in web design is second-to-none.

Too often these days, you will find web agencies staffed with young people pretending they know-it-all about online business, social media marketing, and website design. Unfortunately, they don’t realize there is so much more than template driven solutions and social media. They don’t have the experience to make sound online business decisions, and they may even be charging you a monthly fee to do nothing.

I was born the year Atari was invented. I grew up learning primitive Internet technologies, and I designed and developed websites and internet technologies through the “dot com” boom and bust period.

I am a pioneer of using the Internet for mass communication. In 1996, I was on a small team which was one of only two major networks in North America delivering the Tour de France online. My publishing of the Tour de France was viewed by millions of people and set the stage for years of Internet streaming of the Tour in the years that followed. Further, the team handled PR for Lance Armstrong when news broke that he had cancer.

Further, I was a founding member of Tech Village (Rossland BC) and served on the board of directors for two years. Years ago, I was the curriculum creator and instructor for “Website Management & Internet Design” (Dept. of Computer Science) at Selkirk College in 1999 – 2001. Also, I’ve had the privilege of designing and collaborating with many other top Canadian graphic and new media designers and agencies. My client list includes many award-winning companies including two of “Canada’s Best Privately Managed Companies”, as judged by the National Post, and two other individuals that were Kootenay Business Magazine’s “Business People of the Year” winners.

There is a difference between hiring me and hiring a student or “your brother’s cousins sister’s friend”.

As a Professor at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, I’ve had the pleasure of training many of Kingston’s Ontario’s next generation of designers and marketers. However, while these students have basic know how, I know nothing replaces real world experience than can only be developed after many years in the business working on global campaigns and projects that reach millions of people.

I am not limited to what I learned in design school. Over many years, I have designed and developed websites using technologies such as WordPress, Shopify, SquareSpace, Microsoft, WooCommerce, ZenCart, Drupal, Amazon, Adobe Animate, video, and CSS. I can create social media channels and embed Google, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube feeds into power house websites.

For even more demanding websites, I develop database driven e-commerce websites to allow companies to sell their products and services online in a global marketplace. I design and customize business-to-business (B2B) websites that integrate e-commerce applications with inventory management.
