I’m passionate about both web startups and established internet leaders and how they interconnect our dynamic world. Understanding the fundamentals of the Internet, and how people utilize it, has been a personal keystone of my life as I've formed nine companies since 1997. By combining my own authentically unique style with a dynamic array of experiences as my guide, I seek to continually help craft a better web.

Startup Company Case Study

"Anything that won't sell, I don't want to invent. Its sale is proof of utility, and utility is success." - Thomas A. Edison

Organic Online Growth

778% increase in web site visitors!

In 2008, from July 4th through August 3rd, Guide of Hawaii served a total of 16,768 visitors with 75,459 page views. Within two years, during the same period, I had helped Guide of Hawaii had reached 44,885 visitors and 162,328 page views; 167% visitor growth. Not bad, but improvable with some work!

By 2014, during the same time period, Guide of Hawaii served a total of 147,287 visitors with 362,387 page views. In contrast to 2008, that amounts to a 778.38% increase in visitor growth by using techniques I carefully crafted for the travel web site.

Over the last 10 years, profits have grown consistently as well. The Average Annual Growth Rate over the last 10 years has been over 101% when taking into account gains or losses each year, while the Compound Annual Growth Rate has seen a very decent 50% in growth over the 13-year duration of the company.

Get in Touch... let's talk ideas!

Contact me with a short blurb about your idea or project and I'll get back to you promptly.

That's a good question! I'm honestly very fortunate, given my lengthy time working with a multitude of businesses, to be skilled at a large number of web-related and company-building tasks - including responsive design, front-end development, smaller PHP programming projects, and online marketing and strategy. I also have a firm grasp on team building, project management, and generally how to build a successful foundation for the future. At heart, I'm an entrepreneur myself - I ultimately just want to help create incredible new things that improve the local community or even the world at large. Shoot me an email if you have any questions!

I personally hand craft and develop rates specific to each project - so you're best bet is to touch base and let me know what you have in mind. I quote projects based on what the needs of the clients are. Larger projects with a longer duration typically have a better rate than projects that only need a few hours of work.

While each project is unique - typically - the process and steps needed to build a solid company are similar. With nearly 15 years of personal experience I'll work with you to deliver a strategy and provide guidance for your specific goals. I can't promise you absolute success with every venture, but I can definitely make sure you've got an experienced and well-informed leader helping you along the way.

Absolutely! Be sure to check out the Startups section of this site along with my Web Development and Entrepreneur blog.
