Who I Am

Your small business has a story to tell. I love telling stories. It’s what I’ve done for my entire life. I started with a love for telling stories through the written word. It’s an incredible feeling being able to bring a story to life through words. But I’ve also learned to love telling stories through photos, videos and even websites. And now I mainly focus on telling the stories of small businesses through their websites. So whether you need a new website to tell the story, some copy written for a case study, blog post or feature, or a story told through photos or video, I want to help you tell that story.

Work on a website doesn’t end when the site is launched. Websites need to be maintained to make sure nothing breaks and that it remains secure. And small changes are needed all the time. I can help run your site to make sure that it stays online and to make any small tweaks you might want. That leaves you free to work on creating content and/or running your business.
