About Me

I am a website developer specializing in WordPress. I write HTML, Sass, JavaScript and PHP. I am comfortable working with relational databases, as well as a multitude of hosting environments. Through the years, I have worked in-house, for a dev shop, for large agencies and for small agencies. I've also been freelancing since 2002. On a daily basis, I touch many sites, some are built by me, some by other developers, and some are built by people who call themselves developers but probably should not. I was once one of those, but I've learned a lot over the years. For what it's worth, I learn the most by working on website type 3 - those built by people who maybe don't know how to write any code. I'm proud to say debugging is a strength of mine.

I mainly do Wordpress custom site builds, support and maintenance. But I also have experience in project planning, prototyping, site design, site architecture, SEO and deployment. In addition, I know Illustrator and Photoshop from my previous career as a graphic designer.

Funny story: my first legit dev job was building an enterprise-level Drupal site (which I had no business doing at that stage in my career.) I got the job done, but I haven't touched Drupal since and I hope to continue forgetting all I learned about it.

Testimonial

I worked closely with Niki 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. She is a great listener and applies her design talents to help make you look great online. She is also flexible and behind you all the way. When I had to rush and get my site live in September she was on top of it and enabled me meet my deadline.

She was great about pointing out opportunities for SEO and giving pro tips on how to refresh content. She has also taught me to use Wordpress by myself and when I am not able to do something she sends a video of her doing it as a demo. I still refer to these from time to time. Niki is a rare combination of super creative and responsible/ on time with her work. I highly recommend Niki.
