Web Consultant & UX/UI Designer

I designed my first website in 2000 for a small start-up in Dallas, Texas and have been building sites and apps for small businesses ever since.

For more than a decade, I’ve been an independent consultant, working with agencies and companies, small and large. I currently live in Portland, Oregon and specialize in:

  • Design, development and marketing services for small businesses
  • UX design or front-end development contract work
  • WordPress development and theme customization
  • App design and gamification

Web Design

You have a product to sell, a cause to advocate, a message to communicate. My comprehensive design process will:

  • Start with an understanding of your business and users
  • Utilize team collaboration, iterative design and user testing
  • Elegantly integrate branding, messaging and functionality
  • Meet business goals and maximize user experience
  • Deliver the best solution for your budget


When it comes to front-end development, I have a vast amount of experience and up-to-date understanding of the latest tools and best practices. A quick rundown:

  • HTML5 and CSS3 expert, including mobile
  • Strong in Javascript and PHP
  • Know my way around servers and databases
  • WordPress is my CMS of choice


I graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Marketing and helping clients reach and connect with customers is emphasized throughout my design process. Marketing services include:

  • Usability research
  • User testing
  • Content strategy
  • Social marketing


Phones and tablets have surpassed desktop computers as the most popular way to browse the web. Responsive design delivers optimal experience for both desktop and mobile visitors. It’s great for SEO. I practice responsive design on all new site designs and can also retrofit existing sites.

Small Business

I love serving small businesses and nonprofits and will help you get the most out of your budget. Common requests are:

  • Need a website for a new business
  • Redesign a site that’s outdated or underperforming
  • Develop a content and marketing strategy
