It's a great time to build a website for your business. There's just enough time to be ready for the Christmas season.

Website designer, programmer, and search engine marketing specialist.
Introduction
I'm an aging geek whose been playing with computers since 1970 when I developed a love of programming in high school and continued in college.  I first went online in 1979 while I was working for one of the first personal computer makers, Ohio Scientific.  I ran one of the first online forums on CompuServe.  I helped my wife start an online review column on that service, and in the late 1980's we started selling collectibles online.  Our first website went online in 1996, and we added two more by the end of the decade.  I started to do professional web design around that time, and by 2002 I was also offering Search Engine Optimization and Marketing.  My background in sales comes from work as a department manager at a department store and as a sales representative for a pioneering personal computer maker in the late 1970's, helping my wife with several projects at a market research company in the San Francisco area, and working booths at antique and collectibles shows, and of course, over 10 years of developing successful websites.


Bragging rights
I have created several small businesses and wrote a book about Walt Disney. I enjoy writing and have enormous respect those who do it professionally. I like to think I can write engaging sales copy.
