The first project they launched is a home for sale on Lipan St, Denver, CO. Bonsai-db.com


In 2011 I was hired by an Autodesk affiliate resseller and training center in Colorado to redesign a website. I took on this project and created a WordPress platform that connected all technical blogs, created an ecommerce platform, rebranded the site and all elements to the Autodesk brand and socially connected all aspects of the site with Pardot CRM.

I redesigned the site in 2014 in WordPress and connected all social networks via Jetpack.


In 2014 Funovation.com hired me to restyle an outdated site. I worked with the marketing department and restyled the site to a new logo design and some new branding elements.

I will be acting as a consultant, creating the support guidance documents and working with one of my programmers to launch a new WordPress site.

Lehrer Fireplace and Patio

Lehrer Fireplace and Patio was the first WordPress Site I built in 2011. They still maintain the highest page ranking for wood, gas and patio related items in Denver. I did the UX and since then I have learned a great deal about the user experience. The deployment of mobile devices and trends in WordPress design has changed drastically since that time. My ability to work with clients and design around their needs has increased exponentially since then.
