Welcome! You’ve found the home page for my business, Open Mode. I use the term “open mode” to describe the creative and thoughtful energy I bring to my clients.

I specialize in website development, especially WordPress. My goal is always to provide the client (you) with a custom website that makes it easy for you to create and edit your content, without having to worry about layout or technology. I also want to provide you with a friendly experience, without a lot of technical language getting in the way.

I can also help with design work, webmaster tasks, and newsletter development.
