As a seasoned professional software engineer, I develop and maintain custom WordPress websites that serves business goals and captures the uniqueness of small businesses.

The name, 1 Happy Place, reflects my primary goal of ensuring you feel comfortable and happy with your website.

I have been a Software Engineer for 30 years and love to take the real world and bring it into the digital space. I develop WordPress custom themes and plugins to create features that will best serve your business needs.

I take the time to get to know your business and will help you determine the best features and content structure to communicate with your current and future customers.

Websites should keep pace with the ebb and flow of your unique business. Once the website is launched, I provide you with affordable hosting, training and support over the long term, ensuring the website is always clean, up-to-date, secure, and runs smoothly.
