What I do


Web development, Design and SEO

In today’s business climate where your website is your first point of contact with potential customers, it’s important that when people “look you up,” you make a good first impression. More importantly, your website needs to convert visitors into subscribers and customers to clients.

By working closely with clients, I create solutions for small to medium sized businesses that enable them to acquire, convert and retain customers.

Why choose me as your website developer?

In addition to honest, open communication, here are the 6 key elements I bring to every client’s project:

Stunning Design

People make decisions in the first 2 seconds of viewing your website. They form an opinion about the quality of your company, based on its presentation alone. I will make sure your website makes a convincing first impression.

Business Solutions

Regardless of the design, the most important function of your website is how well it generates business. I will make sure you get all the benefits the web has to offer.

Responsiveness on delivery

Barring any natural disasters, your project is going to be delivered on time. I try to maintain fluid communication with clients and be on top of any situation that might present itself during project development.

Search Engine Optimization

People need to find your website. Visibility is critical for your business once your website is up and running. I have the expertise and knowledge to help you show up in searches and achieve high visibility. I’m Google Analytics Certified and Google Adwords Certified

Easy to use

I don’t believe in creating a site that makes you reliant on me or anyone else to update and add content to your own website. I develop WordPress websites that allow you to get behind the wheel via an easy to use back-end, so you can update website content yourself any time you need or want to.

Support you can count on

I offer 30 days of free support after your project is delivered. In addition, I provide full support for any edits, changes or technical support you may require down the road at an hourly rate or at a flat rate with a monthly support package. I have been in this business over 16 years and I know how important support is.


What I like to do


One of the reasons I moved to Vancouver is because of my love for the outdoors. I enjoy the region’s forests, mountains and ocean. It is as though I am living the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote, “Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air.”

I go hiking every chance I get and I have appreciated the privilege of seeing some of BC’s most pristine natural surroundings that are only accessible via hiking trails.
