Let's Talk!


Chances are you were referred here by a mutual friend (or you are holding my business card).
If so, don't be shy: Say Hello!

I work with:

small, medium and large businesses,



and everyone in-between.

The hardest part of creating a website is knowing where to start and who to trust. (plus a million other questions!)
If you need help with a website and are unsure how to move forward, I can help.

If you are a freelance designer, creative agency, corporation, or other type of business or organization who knows exactly what you need, I can deliver on schedule, within budget, and without bugs.

If you think I might be a good fit for your project, send me an email with the following information:

  • Contact Information (who should I respond to)
  • Budget (how much do you have to spend)
  • Timeline (when does this need to be done and delevered by)
  • Brief description of the project or work request (brief but descriptive. I can't help you if I don't know what you need)

What I offer

There isn't always a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to websites.

I can work with you to determine exactly what you need and whether or not it fits into your budget.

Here are some of the services I offer:

  • Custom WordPress Development (theme and plugin development)
  • WordPress Backend Customizations
  • Custom Frontend Development
  • Interactive Web Apps (custom HTML/JavaScript apps)
  • Content Management System setup and customizations Joomla, Drupal, Expression Engine, Craft, etc.
  • SEO and SSO Consulting
  • Design and User Experience (brand and/or logo consulting)
  • Hosting and Domain Name Services (consulting and recommendations)

I offer a trustworthy perspective, years of experience, quality and efficiency, and overall, respect.

High Quality Code

Version Control


I can't recommend James highly enough.

He's a great developer and an excellent collaborator. At Jive he was a key member of the web team.

He has an excellent eye for user experience design and an interest in continual learning and self-education that is vital to stay current in our field.

James is simply one of the easiest to work with guys I know.

Matthew Beck, Back-End Developer at Jive Software

James is one of the most intelligent and thoughtful designer-developers I have had the pleasure of working with in my career. He handles criticism well but also provides excellent reasoning behind his design decisions, and can clearly communicate his ideas. Did I mention he writes clean code? It's wonderful. Based on the year I spent working with James at Jive Software, I highly recommend him.
