Welcome! Do you...

Let's do it. I've designed and launched many sites for small businesses. Let's talk about domains, hosting, marketing strategy, and more.
I would love to help. Let's put our heads together and figure out how to make the new site original, clean, and easy to manage.

Good morning! Let’s imagine what’s possible for your website…

Let’s say you wanted to create a way for cyclists to find their way around Boise? We could create something like this:

For this, I used three of Google’s Mapping APIs. Click here to see it in a new window, or open it on a mobile device.
Or maybe you need to graph or chart some data…
Here, I’ve used The Open Weather historical data API for the data, and High Charts for the charting functionality. We can use any type of graph or chart you see on High Charts (or other JavaScript-based charting libraries like D3 and Charts.js) to visualize your data.
Or, maybe you need a kind of audio player, where animal sounds are generated using a drag-and-drop interface…

This makes use of the jQuery library and the native HTML5 Audio element.
