My core service is web development. I primarily work in WordPress, but I still can offer help with a non-WordPress site. I am a hybrid programmer-designer, which is great for a larger project because I can transition into a director position easily. Depending on the scope of a project, I often will contract in photographers, writers, designers, or developers. My recent projects range in scope from a local ‘mom and pops’ shop to a platinum musical artist. Maybe you need the equivalent of an online brochure. Maybe you have a store with 2000 products. I can help in any case.
Rather you already have a detailed style guide or you are just starting out, I can make your credibility indistinguishable for the top companies in your field. If you think branding is not important, draw a pentagram on your forehead with lipstick for a day. The few hundred people you interact with in a day will be confused at the least. How much more care should you take with a business’s logo, color pallet, or typographical choice? The digital transcendence of a brand has the potential to be seen by limitless eyes.
Photography and Video
Because access to quality equipment becomes more and more trivial, businesses have to work harder to distinguish themselves from casual individuals. Photography and video help to put a face to your brand. They take you from being an asset for the consumer, to an actualized relationship with your demographic. Photography and video also help to establish credibility, as these mediums usually require higher production budgets.
On Maui, every business I have worked with has seen a significant boost in traffic, which is mostly due to the content I provide them. In California, adding a blog to a site would generally increase site traffic by one to three percent. Here on Maui, there is relatively little competition for quality text content so I can predictably produce a boost in traffic that is tenfold what I previously got in California.
In the past, businesses would market directly with customers in person, through the radio, or on broadcast television. These days, almost all of our customer and client interaction comes through a digital medium. Thus, it’s important to master each digital medium in addition to fostering meaningful relationships with customers and clients. For people to find your business, Google needs you to write content. Google’s algorithms are trying to figure out the appropriate places to list your site.
These are some of my writers. They all work with me on a contract by contract basis. If you are interested in having them write for your site, please contact me.

Coaching, Troubleshooting, and Consultation
I regularly work with clients both in-person and on Zoom (net conferencing) to help them solve isolated issues. Sometimes you’re agency just can’t get a site to work the way you would like. It might be advantageous to have a WordPress expert developer to check it out.
In addition to troubleshooting, I’ve recently been helping dozens of businesses map out their static page content, in addition to their content-marketing schedule. It’s great if a business can produce blogging content in-house, but it usually tends to not work out. I can help you get your content on schedule so you can start getting all of the marketing benefits and making more money.
For new customers, I require payment for initial consultations. Don’t let this dissuade you, I have yet to find someone who didn’t feel that my help paid for the cost of the initial consultation many times over.
