Web development and design

I specialize in web design and development with the philosophy that each project should bring about great results and good karma. I enjoy creating custom responsive websites in WordPress and Drupal using HTML, CSS, jQuery, JavaScript, PHP, and MySQL. Regardless of the project, flawless function will come before form. A properly hand–coded site means you’ll end up with a valid, industry compliant, search engine optimized site that looks great and loads quickly on most devices.

Explore a bit about me, and review a few of the projects I’m thrilled I had a hand in creating. Then give me a shout, and together we’ll create a simply thoughtful website.



Yes, it’s true. It will show itself very quickly, so you might as well know it up front. I really get into my creative projects. My skills are varied, and ever expanding. Since the 90’s, I’ve enthusiastically worked for agencies and corporations from Vermont to New York to Virginia, I’ve won awards and been active in my creative community – all because solving design and production problems are, well… fun!

I worked with Niki in 2012 to redesign and relaunch our website at the Coalition for Smarter Growth. While I have a design background myself, Niki was invaluable with helping me understand what we were looking for for our web design, realizing it, and then taking my design ideas to the next level.

I found Niki incredibly responsive and easy to work with, and have recommended her team many times to others looking for web design work. I wouldn't want to work with anyone else!less

I worked closely with Niki last year to build, design, and launch a site for my business from scratch. Niki was highly recommended to me by another designer who said she was creative and super responsive, which all turned out to be true. Niki always brought me great choices, and did so on time or early. Likewise, she delivered designs when she promised them or early. She is intuitive about what you need and takes time to understand what you are trying to do. Conversations were productive and fun but also efficient.
