I’ve been designing sites on the web and generating web content since 1998. I’ve been working specifically with WordPress customization since 2010. I enjoy melding my technical skills, love of design, and strong communication skills to create exciting projects for my clients. I am highly organized, detail oriented, and I get the job done.
Let me combine creativity, technical skills, great writing, and professionalism to create a website that will make you proud.

From 1998 through the present I have developed my online presence through my entertainment magazine website, Sidekick (1998-2004), and my personal blog, which I have been writing since 2004. I have grown to be an established member of the social media community and am a respected expert at WordPress; I also host the Summer of Awesome blog carnival each summer.
In 2009, I created and organized a new event for Ottawa area bloggers, Blog Out Loud. It is an one-night event where twenty-one bloggers read their favourite post from the past year out loud, and photo bloggers display their art. This event has grown annually to include over 100 bloggers and I continue to be the chief facilitator and promoter each year.
Networking with other bloggers led to offers for design work. I have been designing headers and helping with WordPress customizations for friends and family since 2009.
I also work as a freelance writer for non-web based publications. My writing has been published in the Ottawa Citizen and Ottawa Parenting Times Magazine.
I have a B. Eng. from the University of Waterloo.
