Design Services

My goal is to help you beautify and improve the function, the flow and the security of your Wordpress site on the Genesis framework. I don’t just make your site look pretty — I inspect all the administrative underpinnings of your blog. Site running slow? I’ll fix that! Database too large? Done! Then, I teach you how to become a more self-sufficient webmaster. Want to get started now? Fill out a no-obligation design request form and let’s schedule your free phone consultation.
