With over 25 years of experience in Web Design and Development, my journey began during an internship that evolved into a Lead Web Designer position while I pursued my college education. In this role, I collaborated with web developers, leveraging my experience in computer science to ensure seamless functionality while focusing on crafting captivating user interfaces for our esteemed clientele.
After graduation, I founded a successful website and creative boutique, where I orchestrated the development of custom content management systems by collaborating with web developers I carefully selected. I remained responsible for creating the front end of these unique websites using HTML & CSS. Many of the web developers I worked with have since gone on to work for renowned global brands.
In 2008, I delved into WordPress, which has been my platform of choice for website development ever since. With extensive experience in various content management systems and custom website building with the help of programmers, I find WordPress to be an exceptional tool for managing the majority of web development tasks. Its vast array of powerful plugins facilitates functionality at the click of a button, which would otherwise require significant investment for custom programming.
Throughout my career, I have been involved in diverse aspects of Web Design and Development, encompassing design, development, management, and outsourcing. My consultancy services include website analysis and delivering optimized, informative, aesthetically pleasing, and conversion-focused websites.
