Reviews and references


Carolyn McHale

For 5 years Nathan has done the majority of my business’ WordPress site development. He builds mostly custom, fully-responsive, mobile-ready sites quickly and with a thoughtful approach to UI across devices. His broad digital knowledge base and extensive programming skills have helped clients with topics ranging from UI/IX, Google AdWords and SEO to marketing advice, all of which he is able to speak to and is current on. My clients and I have been very happy with Nathan’s work!

Side projects

After moving to Colorado, I was interested in how accurate snowstorm forecasts were. So I created a WordPress plugin that polled several forecasting services and compared their results on dynamically generated pages.

Ideal team

I prefer to work on small, fast-moving teams.
