  • I accompany my clients through the process from strategy definition to design and all the way past launch. I make sure they understand the available options and the implications of their decisions. I also look after their websites — keeping them up-to-date and performing — so that they can stay focused on their work.

    My role is to build them the most effective online marketing tool possible, show them how to grow it themselves and then ensure them complete peace of mind by having their backs at all times.

  • I charge by the project, not by the hour. This means I will give you a quote for the completion of the project as defined and you won’t have to pay for each little addition or change of mind (within reason). The project is over when you are happy with it. I ask for 50% to start work and the balance upon main delivery (i.e. when my part is done). On most projects post-delivery support, tweaks and advice are always included free of charge.

    As for cost, each project is unique so a meaningful range is impossible to give. But give me some details and I will give you an idea as soon as possible.

  • Yes, it will be optimized for all screen sizes from smartphones to jumbo desktop screens. No pinching or zooming to read the pages and no Flash content. More info on what responsiveness means for websites.

  • Absolutely – via WordPress’ user-friendly admin pages that let you edit texts, menus, slideshows and more.

  • If you get stuck, have any question or need something tweaked, I’ll help. No additional charge.

  • Probably. Phone consultations cost $250 for up to 2 hours. Ask anything, including to make a quick fix to your site.

  • Yes, as an option. And with all the features that a fast, secure and robust WordPress website requires: optimized servers running PHP7 and HTTP/2, malware protection and cleaning, SSL certificates (for https pages), automatic daily full backups, CDN (speed up the site for visitors further away) and staging site.

    More precisely I offer hosting management. That is, I will take care of all of your website’s hosting issues (including migration and DNS configuration) and ensure your total peace of mind.

    If you prefer to manage your own hosting account I highly recommend WP Engine.

  • I have over 10 years experience as a freelance press photographer. My clients have included The New York Times, Le Monde, Der Spiegel and Saveur magazine. I have worked with Corbis, SIPA, AFP.

  • Because I treat their project like one of mine. I speak frankly with them and am personally invested in the project’s outcome.

  • Yes, I am a Certified PhotoShelter Consultant.

  • Here are some that I hope will be useful.

  • Route 9W just north-west of NYC is the gateway all the best cycling in the region. And it is now also the name of the recently combined entities digitaltechparis and Cyclists United.
