Web Designer & Developer
Aside from handling the sales and billing/business side of freelancing, I designed and developed websites for a variety of clients. This included working with the client to plan and understand exactly what they needed in an online presence, designing the layout and all graphics, and coding the website. During this time the majority of projects I utilized WordPress to power each site. To offer a full solution to clients I also handled setting up emails, hosting the website and providing long term support and maintenance.
