Web Designer/Programmer

United States - Last active: 11/21/2014 - Tests: 13 - Portfolio: 34

Over the last 13 years, I have developed a wide range of websites using HTML, PHP, MySQL, Wordpress, and Joomla, including websites for startup companies, individuals, and small businesses. What makes me stand out from the crowd is my attention to detail, fast turnaround and response time, communication, and determination. I make it my personal goal to help my clients succeed by providing them with the tools and expertise to ensure that their website is run and maintained just the way they want it. I do my personal best to do everything within my power to meet the clients' needs and requests and am dedicated to making my clients happy. I am currently seeking opportunities to build websites from the ground up as well as modify and maintain pre-existing websites. I also have limited experience in JavaScript, Ajax, image modification and manipulation, virtual assistance, data entry, content entry, and providing simple to moderate web design lessons. I work well as part of a team, but also flourish on my own. I am a hard-working and dedicated professional who wants to become part of a growth-oriented firm if the opportunity arises and I enjoy long-term, ongoing opportunities over short-term ones, but am open to both.

United States - Last active: 09/30/2013 - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 7

As a semi-retired citizen, I decided to refine my latent writing skills. Toward that end, I spend a great deal of time researching in order to deliver knowledgeable content and/or accurate product descriptions. It is for that reason that I generally do not accept assignments that pay less than .04 cents per word. Since I am semi-retired, I especially appreciate clients who need two to four articles weekly for their website or blog. As a website designer, I believe content and presentation are paramount. My websites continually evolve to include the best old and new-style components.
