No project is too big or too small.

Maintenance

Affordable rates and quick results

It's important to keep your website content fresh, and if you don't have the time, I can help. My affordable rates don't impose an hourly minimum and small updates can usually occur within the same business day. Fresh content helps to boost your search engine ranking and keeps visitors coming back. I can keep your product catalogue up to date, switch out your promotional banners, update your blog, integrate your social media feeds, and everything in between.

Seach Engine Optimization

Improve your visibility

The way that search engines work is constantly changing, and keeping your site optimized will help you gain the best possible ranking. I believe it's important to provide more than just a couple tweaks to your website to help you gain visibility. I provide education and strategies, as well as programming services, to help you keep your website optimized with every update that you make.

Projects

I am seriously passionate about programming...

Here are some recent highlights from my personal portfolio. All of my websites are programmed to be cross-browser compliant (IE7 and up) while taking advantage of the latest advances in web programming to reduce load times while providing awesome, interactive features.

CAA Seniors Driving Site

CAA Seniors Driving Portal

Designed by my colleagues at Excentric, I programmed this bilingual, WordPress based site that serves up regionalized content based on postal code entry. It also features a responsive mobile theme, and a number of interactive jQuery games and tools.

Excentric Agency Website

Excentric is a great agency that I'm proud to be a part of. Our website needed a refresh and since that's what we do at Excentric, the whole team collaborated on this award-winning design. I programmed this WordPress based site to be responsive with high-density graphics. Custom jQuery scripting throughout makes the site very interactive.

Elora Label Site

Elora Label Company

This WordPress based project came to me half-finished. It had a design in place but it needed some polishing. With a little graphic design and programming I turned the site into a fully functioning e-commerce shop with a PayPal gateway.
