About Me

I am a Digital designer, Dad of 2, Drummer, Cyclist, Located in the Baltimore, Maryland Area.

As a professional, I am proficient and fluent in WordPress, PHP, CSS, Adobe Creative Suite, and other related web development technologies. I spend most of my time developing custom WordPress themes and sites for my clients, usually developing and implementing customized solutions to solve their needs. Recently, I’ve been specializing in Woocommerce development. With each new project, I like to learn and include at least one new trick that I haven’t used before, which over the years has netted me quite a few new tricks 🙂

I have operated my own design and development business since 2007. Prior to that, I worked at Vic Firth Inc as graphic designer, while assisting with artist relations. My first job out of college was managing a data processing team in the direct mail industry. In addition to running my own business, I am also a partner in WBH Music, a publishing company that developed and provides curriculum to Musicians Institute, in Hollywood, California.

As a drummer, I spent many years teaching lessons and groups, with an emphasis on marching percussion. I arranged and composed music for many ensembles from 1991-2012, with many of these groups enjoying success at a competitive level both regionally and nationally. I’ve also played drum set for many years in and around the Baltimore music scene, having played with bands such as Gunga Din, Honeygo, Moviegoer, Pulaski, The Propellers, ex-Replicas, and currently, Normal Suits.

When I am not at my desk (which is as often as possible), I’m spending time with my 2 kids, both of whom are fine students, athletes, and human beings. I also am an avid cyclist (and currently ex-bike racer) that rides around 10,000 kilometers a year. I particularly like secluded back roads – dirt and gravel especially, as well as mountain inclines and passes. I’m a huge fan of cyclocross racing, and tune in regularly to Dutch broadcasts of these races as often as possible (mijn Nederlands is niet erg goed, maar ik ben aan het leren!).

In addition to web development and graphic design, I provide a number of services to my clients, including photography, video editing, copy writing, email marketing, social media management, content development, brochure and catalog layout, printer liaison, general consulting, and more. The list seems to grow every year as to what services I provide!
