Web Development Services

I’m more than a web programmer. Hire me to build a website on a large or small scale, design and develop web databases, code custom applications, host websites, debug issues, and any other technical website support you may need.

My niche is supporting small business owners and individuals that need professional web development services but don’t need to hire a web development company or full time web developer.

I’m always out here when you need support for your website, whether it’s new development, a website redesign or just occasional maintenance.

Hiring a Freelancer

What I Do...
...and Don't

I’ve heard horror stories from people contacting me about  past experiences of hiring a web developer online.  Web designers that don’t have the technical skills to  complete a job, they took your money and ran,  or won’t give you a copy of your code and database.  I understand hesitation when you need a website and are trying to hiring someone you’ve never met face to face.

FAQs

about hiring a freelance web developer

Most of the websites I build are some form of a content management system (CMS).

Any database driven website can be considered a CMS since the content is stored in a database and managed through web based tools. 

WordPress is a popular open source CMS.  I mainly build  WordPress websites or code custom websites with PHP/MySQL. I build everything from simple HTML sites to complex web applications.

I am an individual, not a team of freelance web programmers. When you hire me, you work with and communicate directly with only me.

I have lived and work remotely in Virginia Beach, VA USA  for over 20 years.

Virginia Beach is on the most southern tip of  east coast, just north of the Outer Banks, NC.  It is the largest city in the state of Virginia, but people are more familiar with neighboring cities like Norfolk and Richmond.

I support local clients in Hampton Roads including Norfolk, Hampton, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Portsmouth, but working remotely, most of my clients are spread across the USA. I take on international clients too.

The term web designer is used somewhat loosely to describe anyone that builds websites. 

Web design implies how a website looks.  I am NOT a graphic designer. I do not design graphical elements that go on a web page.

I focus on the technical side of building websites – specifically related to website code.  I build websites, and take care of all code related aspects of building a website.  Database design and development, PHP programming, debugging problems and providing website support services.

I have been building websites since the late 1990’s. I worked in the corporate world on a team of web programmers before going out on my own to be come a freelance programmer in 2005.  My strengths lie in back end programming and database design and development using PHP MySql.  Problem solving and code debugging along with website security and technical SEO are other areas experience.

Once a final payment has been made, the code is yours.  I have had many people come to me that can not gain access to their code or database, and or their web designer is now trying to charge them excessive fees for a backup of their website.  I simply don’t work this way. 

I accept checks, bank transfers, PayPal and credit cards. I send all invoices over email that include a link for you to pay securely online.

Easy. Get in touch to start a conversation. If your project fits my skill set and we communicate well , I will provide a quote to build your website. If you accept, I will send a contract clearly defining what will be done and and invoice for a deposit to get started.

Custom Web Development

PHP programmer and database web developer

I’m not a graphic designer ( web designer ), but a web programmer. I build websites and web pages but do not create the graphic design (art) that makes up the style of what a website looks like.

When viewing my portfolio, look past the design of  a web page, to how it functions.  Instead of web designer, better terms to describe me would be:

  • Website programmer
  • WordPress developer
  • Database web developer
  • ecommerce website developer
  • custom web developer

I partner with graphic web designers to bring together their work of what a website looks like  to my work of web programming to make it function as a website.  The web designs you see in my portfolio, are not my work. How the websites function – the web programming are what I am trying to communicate.
