Welcome and thank you for checking out my website.  Since 2003, I have held the following roles with the web industry: web designer, social media strategist, and search engine optimizer. I have also been a technical writer/editor for several large technical training companies. In 2003, I became a self-employed web designer specializing in FrontPage/Expression Web themes. Over the years, I have progressed to being a full-service website developer and digital marketer. I work with both WordPress and Joomla CMSs to provide websites that work. I pride myself on my creativity and attention to detail. I am committed to providing excellent customer service.

I don't just build websites, I build relationships.

In regards to Linda Long's work that she has done for Friends of Felines' Rescue Center.

Linda is the best! She has designed many items for our Rescue Center, such as t-shirts, mugs, pins, backpacks. Whenever we have an event, Linda will design a fantastic banner for us--always professionally done, colorful, just perfect! It's like she can "read" what we want. Linda also helps our organization by maintaining our YouTube channel with videos and our events. She has set up our FFRC Nation group--consists of many friends of FFRC--it's a fantastic site. She's very "into" what our needs are.
