Building websites backed by a career in marketing (see LinkedIn profile) was a natural progression. I started by using the Joomla! content management system for web development coupled with VirtueMart for shopping sites. As of 2010-ish, I primarily use WordPress but have also built in Wix and GoDaddy. How can I help you? 

I love to put my marketing degree and passion into every project whether it is for entrepreneurs, big or small companies regardless of a client’s budget. My deep comprehension of branding, artistic expression and website construction/navigation is now second nature. Career experience in web building came from managing:

  • Kia Motors ground-up redesign of their nationwide kiosks
  • Honda Interactive Network, both dealer and customer facing units
  • Mercedes-Benz and Subaru national dealer website programs

I’m easy to work with and build platforms on the owner’s web account which I set up, if they don’t have one. That way the client owns everything, has 24/7 access and can give login credentials to anyone they deem fit to make changes. So essentially if I get hit by a bus, you can get along without me. 

  • If you want to handle your own maintenance and updates after I build you a website, I’ll teach you how to do it.
  • If you want to trade for my services instead of cash out of pocket, let me know what you got.
  • If you want me to craft a VC pitch deck and financial projections for your startup – or – develop turnaround, market and growth strategies, I’d love to join your board.

My car collector friend needed help selling a $5 million-ish dollar 2005 Audi R8 Le Mans Prototype for his client. He wanted a website dedicated to the car. Instead, with some persuasion, we dusted off his domain “Atlantic Sports Car”, configured GoDaddy hosting and built a site that promoted the car and his brand. Navigation easily guided exploration of the car with documentation and photo galleries. Additionally, I took an old business card of his logo then recreated this logo in a vector based program. From concept to launch in 10 days.




Erratic Ale in Dexter, Michigan needed a clean and simple website that they could ultimately manage. They built their business from scratch, they weren’t afraid to take on managing a website. After I built the site using their existing GoDaddy account and WordPress, they tweaked photos and text. The key to this project was locking down the site with an “Are you 21?” gateway.

Stephen Cramer and I partnered up when he needed a site to secure a supplier contract for racing parts soon after leasing his first shop. He struck out on his own and went from working in his garage to 1,500 sq ft. to 5,000 sq. ft in a few years time. He is now one of the premier Porsche and German auto mechanics in southeast Michigan. In exchange for my work, he fixed my car. He has since redesigned his website himself to include a catalog of racing parts.

An old college friend called me in a pinch to build and launch a new website before their first annual Seattle wine tasting event. They only had a few weeks and they needed to switch hosting providers and there wasn’t any money. But they managed to pass along two cases of wine for my efforts. Yeah buddy.

This shopping portal for “Reconditioned Early Porsche Parts” was built in an effort to sell the inventory I had been collecting. I used dramatic photography to show off the quality of the parts. However in the end it became too much work to update this site and post on eBay and the forums. Those sites received way more traffic and had better sell through rates than my startup site. Highlight of the venture: Bob Lutz bought a carburetor part through my site.

Penni Jones is an author and friend who needed a little help cleaning up her blog in exchange for a whiskey and a smile. Who had two thumbs and an empty rocks glass? This guy.

This was a ground up, shopping portal build on a Joomla platform with secure credit card and PayPal checkout for a client in Southern California. It also included re-branding almost everything Will Pringle’s business touched: print ads, inventory photos, price lists, newsletters. We collaborated on everything as I took his well done marketing efforts and gave them a fresh coordinated, consistent presentation. The business ultimately went quiet with the recession of 2008.

This home owners association website was run by a wonderful woman who passed away. They needed a “tech guy” so I donated my services to build a new site from the ground up including secure member only areas.

Jack Riddell and I met on the lawn at the Concorso Italiano through Aaron Robinson back in 2008. They needed a new website for their club. As a car guy, I couldn’t resist volunteering to help Lamborghini owners. While I’m still credited in the About Us on the current site, I did not build their latest version having left California in 2010.


to the website I built (and pictured above) with a simple yet elegant way to emphasize different models of Lamborghinis, turning the photo from B&W to color.

SkierQuest was founded in 2005 by two avid ski racers, Tony Blancato and Michael Kuhn. Their first website was HTML links, pics and text on a page. In 2009, I made the jump to bold imagery in a contrasting B&W layout, rotating image gallery plus online shopping. It helped solidify the company as a new real player in the market that is still in business today.

As a previous owner of a 1966 912 and a web guy, I thought it would be fun to build my own site dedicated to the marque. I called it the 912 Anthology. I tried to load it up with everything one would need to know about 912s: Racing, History, Tech Specs, Carburetor Overview plus the site would search for current “for sale” listings and news and display it with links.
