Freelance web design

I build websites that will get you noticed.

My Mission

As a freelance web designer I have one job — to make my clients happy.

That means building the most amazing (and affordable) websites and landing pages that I possibly can.

It also means handling the things that most clients hate doingWordPress management (software updates, backups, security),  content updates, and strategy. Business owners want to spend their time growing their business, not fussing with a website… that’s what I’m here for.

If you need a new website that looks great, works on all devices and loads fast, or just need help updating parts your site, let’s talk about how I can help. I take on clients of all sizes and give every project the attention it deserves, so please don’t hesitate to contact me.

If you want to know a little bit more about me, go ahead and look.

What My Clients Say

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Chad and I will be using his services in the future. He was very patient when we hit some snags regarding his access to my website and very effectively communicated with the original developer. Perhaps what I was most impressed with was his ability to go above and beyond by providing additional cost effective suggestions for improvement on my site. These are qualities I always look for while hiring. Hilary Rank

Chad’s work was excellent, delivered in a very short timeframe and over a weekend to help us meet a deadline. Very helpful, certainly knew his stuff and was great at giving ideas to help us improve. Kept in touch the whole time so we both knew how things were progressing. An enjoyable experience overall. Helen Ealey
