I received my bachelor's degrees in Electrical Engineering and in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. I have consulted in website design, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Information Technology (IT) for over 15 years. I have clients who range from architecture firms, restaurants and bars, and law firms. I also consult with Continuing Education of the Bar (CEB) on SEO topics. Prior to working as a consultant, I spent 5 years as the Vice President of Production at FindLaw, then the largest legal website. At FindLaw, I was responsible for the design of the website and all of its content. Some of this content included legal centers for small businesses, consumers, small law firms and solo practices, supreme court decisions, lawyer marketing, and legal/political commentary. Before Findlaw, I was head of IT for a biopharmaceutical company. At this company, I was responsible maintaining and upgrading all servers, including the email server, firewall appliance, all network issues, phone systems, and desktop support. I am also a sports and landscape photographer.
I offer a wide range of designs for company/firm websites. These sites are responsive (mobile first), fast loading, SEO ready, and conversion oriented. Sites can also be built with user editable text and images. I also offer limited photo sessions for local clients.
The main areas I look at for SEO are content, website and web page structure, and backlinks. Content should be authoritative, well written, relevant, and original. Next, I will do keyword/phrase research and put together a list relevant to the goals of the site/organization. Then I will look at the site structure, site maps, and cross-links. Finally, I will generate a backlink report and start building relevant backlinks to the site.
Some of the areas I offer IT support are network design, support, and maintenance, support and maintenance for servers, desktop/laptops/mobile devices, POS systems, security camera systems, and building wiring.
