Web Development Services
I build large and small websites, design & develop web databases, code custom applications, host websites, debug issues, and more.
I have been building websites since the late 1990’s. I have worked for small startups and in a corporate setting. 20 years ago I started working remotely, which then snowballed into becoming a full time freelance web programmer.
Freelancing has given me the opportunity to build many different types of applications in many different industries.
My main focus is coding custom websites with PHP/MySQL and WordPress. Almost all web applications I build are a type of content management system (CMS).
With 25+ years experience in the field of website development, I make recommendations of the best solution to build your site within your budget. I am an expert problem solver with identifying and fixing website problems including; code, performance, SEO, hosting, and security issues.
I am located on the East Coast, in Virginia Beach VA. Client’s hire me from all over the USA (and worldwide) to work remotely on their websites.
My skill set focuses on the technical side of web development. This includes coding, database design and development, debugging, technical SEO, web hosting. I do not have a team of web programmers that work for me and do not outsource and web development.
I am not a graphic designer, copywriter or social media marketing expert. If you need these services, I collaborate with graphic and web designers and can connect you with someone to partner and collaborate with.
Although web designer is a general term to describe anyone that builds websites, more specifically a web designer focuses on the graphic design of how a website looks. This includes creating graphic elements, defining, fonts, colors and overall layout of a website. This is creative, “right brain” work.
I am a web programmer, a coder. I build websites, by programming logic with PHP/MySQL to make them function. Work I do ranges from coding simple websites to complex web applications, fixing website problems, website maintenance, security and hosting. This is logical, “left brain” work.
Freelancing has given me the opportunity to work in many different industries on many different kinds of projects.
Every day I am exposed to new challenges to solve and apply what I have learned.
I fill the niche of development and support services for small business owners and individuals. They need web development services, but don’t have the budget to hire a web development company or full time developer. I work remotely to provide professional support services as needed.
Small Business Owners
The majority of my clients are small business owners that understand the importance of a website for their business but don’t have the time to learn how to build and maintain a professional website themselves.
I partner with freelancers web designers that provide niche services like me, along with small web design companies and marketing agencies to provide programming support they don’t have in house. By outsourcing web development, they can offer more services to their clients and grow their business.
Individuals hire me for side projects that include hobby or start up websites. They have great ideas for a new business but don’t know where to start to create a website.
