Helped a dental office specializing in root canals to show how nice and comforting they are by making an all-new website replacing their old Flash-based one. It’s responsive and uses vector graphics so they look really sharp, even on retina displays.

I launched a new, fully responsive website for desktop SMS company, Red Oxygen. Have a look, and resize your browser window to see it adapt! It also has both vector graphics and retina images.

From a group studio session. Small soft box to camera right, and a strip light I pointed at the backdrop that spilled over onto her shoulder.

I just finished a tutorial on Backbone.js Models, a follow-up to my tutorial on Backbone.js Views. This tutorial is for beginners to Backbone, a really great — though not perfect — technology for the web.

For Christmas 2013, I put Christmas lights onto my website using object-oriented Javascript. I’ve taken them down, but I thought it was a good introduction to proper OOP Javascript for people unfamiliar with it. I describe what I did, and some of the confusing issues with Javascript classes.

After dressing up my house with Christmas lights, it was time to dress up my website with them too! Merry Christmas and happy holidays, everyone!
I develop WordPress-driven websites for small businesses. From Pleasanton, I serve the San Francisco Bay Area, Oakland, Fremont, San Jose and beyond.

While waiting to launch my most recent website, I walked the dog and noticed the moon had a corona, and I had to grab the camera and capture it. This is at 24mm on a full-frame camera. Next time I'll try my 11-18mm lens. You can’t actually see the rainbow colors just by looking at it — you have to photograph it and push up the vibrance and saturation to see it.

Story
Introduction
I’m a Web designer / developer based in Pleasanton, CA, specializing in websites with WordPress back ends. I’m also a photographer, so I give businesses their own custom websites with custom photos.
Bragging rights
I’m a real stickler about English grammar and spelling, so I can also give my clients some good copy editing for their websites.

Been there a few times now with two cars. They definitely don’t up-sell you on major services, and their prices are reasonable, and they get things done when they say they’ll be done at the agreed price. I have no worries taking my cars here.
