I Recognized the potential of an emerging class of notebook computers (Netbooks).

I was contracted to design this website for Education Consultant Susan Hendricks. Her requirements specified that the content should be easily updated by her, include a contact form, and should be inexpensive. Using the out of the box functionality and template availability of a CMS like Joomla allowed for the rapid completion of this site to the complete satisfaction of the client.

Testimonial: “Gary's knowledge of website design and marketing is extensive, and he is a great person to work with as well. He did an excellent job with my initial website, staying well within the paramaters set, and I will contact him again for further site upgrades and marketing advice.”
