Hello! I’m not sure how you found me, but I’m glad that you did.
To sum up, I design websites that look great on phones, tablets, and computers, and that are very easy to maintain. I prefer WordPress as a CMS (content management system) and am also fluent in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I like to use color and imagery to help business owners and artists convey their message to visitors, existing and potential. I am also well-versed in e-commerce websites through the use of WooCommerce/Paypal.
I help people use social media and content to their advantage. I can instruct nearly anyone on best practices for web maintenance, social media, hashtags, and SEO.
I am also a photographer who specializes in portraits and headshots, food/cocktail photography, interiors and exteriors for real estate, still life photography, and in photo retouching using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom. Have passport, will travel!
On the personal side, I am a California native, born in the early 80’s, and a lover of 90’s music. I am most creative when the sun goes down and into the early morning hours. I love sunset naps in my backyard hammock, traveling abroad, snuggling my three rat terrier pups, and sipping a glass of wine in the evening. I know all of the words to “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” by Tupac and Snoop Dogg. “Two Princes” by Spin Doctors is also a fav. The first car I ever bought for myself was a black 1998 Ford Mustang GT with black leather interior, and I miss it like the dickens. I’d consider myself adventurous, but not necessarily brave. I am a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Francisco Giants, even when they suck. I enjoy being on the beach, but I’ve only been in the ocean twice three times (once on a snorkeling dive in Catalina when I was 10 years old; once in Malibu; most recently in a hot spring in the Aegean Sea off of Santorini, Greece). I also love sushi and cheesecake.
My core values are honesty, compassion, and forgiveness. I think it’s more important to listen than it is to speak. When it comes to ideas: give me an inch, I will give you a mile. I prefer to arrive early, and I believe that the entire world is a glorious opportunity to learn.
If you’re down, I would LOVE to work with you! Let’s talk about your ideas.

About This Project

 

The Gitali Institute is a superior total body health and wellness practice in the Napa Valley area of California. They also provide beauty enhancement services.

 

Within a few hours of our initial conversation, with the trust of the clients, I received enough text content and images to begin designing and building. Within just a few days I had received all of the content I needed to flesh out the entire site.

 

Preliminary web design took a little less than two full working days. Modifications were made over the course of about a week. (Unfortunately, I was sick and was unavailable for a few days.) In about two weeks we had a fully functioning and published one-page website on a new, less expensive server. This is still one of the faster websites I’ve ever designed and published thanks to the active participation and communication of the clients.
