Yes, You Still Need a Website

Website Development

I build websites that help small businesses look their best, engage customers, and grow sales. With over 20 years experience I build high-impact sites for awesome clients.

Inspire & Ignite

Consulting & Speaking

Need help in getting unstuck? Whether that’s mentoring entrepreneurs or inspiring entire audiences, I will help you unlock potential and unleash action.

Here’s the deal

I believe that small towns, small cities and rust belt communities have the power to re-write their story and transform themselves at the intersection of entrepreneurship and community… I’m seeing that happen in my hometown of Utica, NY where I am the Director of the thINCubator – a local incubator and co-working facility where I’ve worked with over 400 entrepreneurs and want-repreneurs (folks who WANT to start a venture but don’t know how to get started).

Through advising, mentoring and teaching I’ve developed online versions of my programs to give you a strong foundation and tactical skills you need to be successful in your business.

I also know that small businesses need great websites, AND marketing strategies and a great story to make them stand out in the marketplace, and I can handle your website build from start to finish.

And I’m passionate about working with communities who want to empower creatives, artists and entrepreneurs to build a better future. If you’re part of a municipality, educational institution or company that is serious about making change happen, I’d love to help.

Big Ideas Start Small

I’ve worked with hundreds of new entrepreneurs, helping them take their business idea from pipe dream to profit. As a Mentor, Coach, Consultant, and Speaker, I’ve built actionable toolkits and tactile business growth solutions that accelerate small businesses.

These online sprints are designed as self-paced courses or supported with mentorship and accountability meetings. Let’s get to work.

Website Development

Looking for someone who can deliver you a sleek, no-nonsense website for your company or personal brand? Need responsive design? Check. Need commerce integration? Check. Need a design you can be proud of? Check. Need to do it all on a super-reasonable budget? Check.

I’m a WordPress nerd.

WordPress is a platform that’s easy to learn, robust, and is constantly being updated to integrate the latest web standards. I utilize multiple frameworks and plugins that allow for easy and flexible updating of the site. Utilizing WordPress also does not bind the client to any one host or service such as SquareSpace or any proprietary CMS system, therefore the site can be moved between servers or hosts, and updated without difficulty. Don’t trust your brand to one of those free site builders and you don’t need to pay huge development fees. Ready to get started? Good. Projects start at only $1,500.

Speaking & Consulting

Small businesses, colleges, high schools, and community organizations hire me as a keynote speaker to get their teams thinking about what the future might hold for their industry or organization. I love speaking about entrepreneurial ecosystems, leveraging technologies or inspiring young people towards action or helping organizations change the way they think and work.

Topics that are right in my wheelhouse include The Connection Economy, Digital Storytelling, Strategic Branding, Customer Experience, Community Development and much more. Ready to get started?
