I work with clients in 2 main areas:

1) WordPress Training (I’ve been using WordPress since 2004)

I’ll help you install WordPress, set up your site to suit your business needs, show you how to create content, or help you tweak and improve an existing WordPress site.

2) Online marketing consulting & training (I’ve been helping companies reach their audience online since 2001)

Together we’ll create an effective online marketing strategy for your particular business. Whether you’re just getting started with a brand new site, or if your current marketing has plateau-ed, I’ll show you how to get the results you need.

If you are in the Los Angeles area we can meet in-person, otherwise we can work together via phone and online meetings.
