About me

I am a freelance web designer and developer, specializing in User Experience Design, Drupal theming, and front-end development. I live in Elmira, Ontario, Canada – a little town just north of Waterloo, Ontario.

What I do

I offer high quality front-end evelopment, drupal theming and site building. I can also help with content strategy, information architecture, user experience design, custom web design, and pretty much anything else you need to make your website great.

I am looking for individuals or organizations to work with on an informal, ongoing basis. If you're interested, check out some of my Drupal work, and contact me for more details.

Why hire me?

Skills – I can create unique designs with a keen eye for detail. My HTML and CSS skills are second to none (well, almost ...). I have a keen sense of the user experience and an understanding of how to make a site work well for people. I can even do a little bit of PHP and know my way around a unix server and command line interface.

Experience – I built my first website in 1997 and haven't looked back. For 11 years I worked for the University of Waterloo in various web design and development roles. I have also maintained my own websites for many years, including The Webmaster Forums, which my partner and I took over in 2005. I started my freelance business in April, 2011. See my LinkedIn profile for a full summary of my qualifications.

Quality (within budget) – I've never been one to be satisfied with second-best. I always deliver the best quality work, while keeping your budget in mind. 

Reliability – I am a full-time freelancer, which means you're not competing with a "day job" for my time. I have strong communication skills, and am dedicated to getting your project done on time and within budget.

Passion – I love what I do, plain and simple.

The big picture – I understand all of the things that need to come together for a successful website. You are trying to reach an audience, sell a product, or communicate a message. Whatever I do for you, I understand that it fits within the larger context of your organization.
