Hi, I’m Ryan, an experienced full-time freelance designer, developer, and WordPress professional located in Irvine, CA. I specialize in website redesigns for established food, lifestyle, medical, and tech bloggers. I also offer ongoing support & maintenance plans.
I’m passionate about helping publishers like you reach your goals and level up your website with the best reader experience possible. This includes usability best practices, performance (site speed), mobile responsiveness, and accessibility optimization.
From my experience, when you think of the user first, giving them the best experience possible, this leaves you free to focus on your content so that search engine rankings and traffic follow organically.
Your website partner
If you’re a solopreneur, you might not have the resources for in-house web designers and developers. So, you likely need an agency or consultant(s) you can trust to help make your business shine online and take care of the technical stuff.
Agencies are a good solution for some, but they can be very expensive (overhead). A smart alternative is to find a reliable partner with experience and a broad skillset.
“After a frustrating four-month search for an experienced WordPress developer, I was relieved to find Ryan. He is a super-skilled developer and a talented designer—an ideal combo.“
Very Good Cook
I work with established mid-tier food, lifestyle, medical, and tech bloggers who monetize their site with ads and/or other methods. My clients generate between 50K – 4MM pageviews per month, each.
I also work with the majority of my clients on an ongoing basis keeping their websites running smoothly, helping them continue taking their sites further, and available should anything go sideways technically.
“Ryan has been an absolute joy to work with. He is fast to resolve any tech issues that come up on my site and is always looking for ways to better my pagespeed. He listens to my goals for my business and website and executes with ease, always exceeding my expectations!“
More about me
I built my first website in 1999 and have been self-employed for over 11 years. This is my business and livelihood. I’m fortunate to work with some amazing clients and I treat each and every project I take on with personal pride and ownership.
I’m married with one child. I play the drums (and dabble on a few other instruments), I’m usually in a band or two at any given time, and enjoy live music and movies. My wife also runs a successful home-based business and is an amazing pastry chef, cook, and newly venturing into graphic design. My daughter is a junior in high school and is into programming, reading, writing, music, and animals (even insects, maybe especially insects).
