Experienced Joomla web design specialist. I have worked with many different versions of Joomla from 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5 for over 4 years. Prior to Joomla, I worked for various clients using Microsoft FrontPage and HTML. I prefer to use Virtuemart as an ecommerce module with Joomla.

I use Akeeba as my preferred backup tool with Joomla, and have the ability to restore a site using Akeeba KickStart, which I have used numerous times. I am familiar with CSS and can make template changes to match client specifications. Configuration...

Service Description

I always start a Joomla project by creating a full site backup if the customer has an existing site. Otherwise, I work from a pre-designed template that the customer selects and then customize it to meet their specific needs. I have the ability to build a site on my remote server and send the URL to the client for approval or changes as I design. Once the site is ready for launch, then the customer can give me details on their hosting service for upload to go live.
I can make changes if necessary to your existing site and make backups as I go.

I have worked in IT for over 10 years. Worked as a contractor for Microsoft during the Windows ME launch. I've designed websites since 1994, starting with the very first version of MS FrontPage, moving into Expression Web and then content management with Joomla.

Intermediate WordPress experience and tons of experience with servers, web files, HTML and domains. Enough CSS experience to do minor template changes.

My slideshow experience is with Photodex ProShow Gold. I have produced family member memorials for funeral homes and pet memorials for individual owners. I will scan photographs you send to me, digitally correct damaged photographs to restore them to usable condition. Add background music, opening title screens and closing credits if desired. All of my videos can be shared on YouTube or other social communities.
