For twenty years, I've been helping businesses and nonprofits build clean, beautiful websites that are easy to use and easy to update. Your website is the face that your business presents to the world, and it should reflect your unique style and voice. Through custom design and friendly advice, I'll help you show that face to the world in the best light.

I help my clients demystify the world of technology. My goal is for you to feel confident about your website so you can focus on your business. I can handle all the details for you, or teach you to make website updates yourself - whatever works best with your interests, schedule, and budget. I also offer web hosting, including personal support for any technical issues.

Do you need a logo, business card, brochure, sign, or other printed materials? Consistent graphic design is crucial to a professional image, and I can create a look and feel that best represents your business - and impresses your customers.

Please visit my website to see examples of my work, and contact me any time for a free estimate.

 Support our race sponsors- they support us!

Special thanks to Steve Lewis Subaru and Greenfield Savings Bank.

Thank you to all of our hardworking volunteers, including the Race Committee- you make the race possible!

In case you missed it, here are some photos from Race Day, thanks to Art Schwenger:
