Clear Communication through Web Design
   United States
  |   San Francisco, CA


Clear communication is at the core of every great business. Your message to your customers can be the difference between reaching your entrepreneurial dreams and going back to the daily grind.

Through my experience as an entrepreneur, founding and working for many start-ups, I understand the need for small businesses to communicate effectively on the web.

Building websites for my own companies, my employers and free-lance clients has showed me how to use clean design and clear messaging to provide the best possible customer experience.

I have:
Designed and built websites for more than 10 years
Built online communities to support a large base of technical clients
Created customer feedback systems to improve product design
Setup and managed social media communities

As I continue to pursue my own entrepreneurial passions I am always looking for other entrepreneurs and small business who can benefit from my experience.
