Solving problems in the digital space.

About Me

Hey there, I'm Daniel.
A lover of all media digital with a passion for development; focused on data-driven results and industry best-practices for a seamless user experience. Ambitious developer, designer, and technical manager with 3+ years experience solving problems in the digital marketing space for a variety of clients and industries. I like to tackle problems head on, with a harmony between ease of use and real-world application, and have proven success in increasing customer retention and client satisfaction with my suggested implementations. On top of that, I'm hard working, resourceful, and a positive thinker.

Marketing

Not only is it important to have a unique website to you, but also for it to be seen by search engines as you want to be represented. I specialize in both search engine optimization and search engine marketing. I can make sure your site shows up under the appropriate search terms and show your ads to the desired audience. After years of working with search engine algorithms, I can tailor an SEO strategy for all types of websites and businesses, and get organic listings where they need to be.

Development

Not everyone has the same tastes. Not everyone has the same needs. A website should be as unique and personal as who it is representing. I create websites that are purposeful and unique, tailored to the individual needs and requirements of a particular project using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Ajax, and a bit of React sprinkled in.

Design

I also specialize in photo/video editing, branding, and overall graphic design. I believe that the process of creating creative media is unique to the user and through communication, research, and exploration, the right fit will present itself. There’s no one “catch-all” method for every project, but the process of finding the right fit helps strengthen my understanding of each and every undertaking.
