Squarespace Website Design is where my creative and analytical sides find their happy place together!
I’ve been a Squarespace designer since it launched in 2003 and ever since I’ve been in love. Since then, I’ve created many websites for all types of clients — private and business. Sure, I have a background in graphic design and learned the old school way of using Dreamweaver and Adobe Flash, but this was a no brainer for me. I love Squarespace because the focus is on design and SEO, and the return on your investment is incredible. But more than anything it’s very easy and quick to use.
Like the developers at Squarespace, I’m always learning, improving, and creating better ways to bring my clients traffic and increase their productivity. My expertise lies in applying your unique brand to the Squarespace template and making it yours!
From landing pages and portfolios to full commerce sites, I would love to create a website for you and customize it to meet your needs.

After I have a better understanding of your website goals, I will begin gathering information to get started! The layout will be selected based on your individual needs and will include a header and footer, social media integration, display of social icons and contact information, email newsletter signup form, contact information, and SEO optimization. Next, you’ll review the site for any changes. Lastly, I will hand over the site, which includes an introduction to your dashboard and a tutorial with instructions for managing the site on your own. Alternatively, you may also hire me to provide regular maintenance of the content and design of your site.
