My Third Chapter

I'm excited about this chapter of my career. Discovering new technology is so fun for me. And with all the years of experience I've already accumulated, melding the old and new technologies is something I've come to really enjoy.

I'll continue to learn new technology tricks and share them with my clients. Things like the best practices for SEO, social media appropriateness, new technologies and styles, design, layout, spelling, message, and all the important details for the direction of a small business.
