I'll ensure your site is responsive, loads quickly, and provides a seamless user experience.

More than satisfied...

I worked with Connor on our online advertisement, and it doubled my class size this past month! I was able to invest some of those profits into traveling for more dance training and a much needed vacation. I've worked with Connor for a number of years on a variety of projects as well. Whether it be for family memoirs, or business strategy he has always delivered exceptional work. He is charismatic, helpful, and flexible which makes it very easy and enjoyable to work with him. I've noticed over time that he is always expanding his knowledge to offer something new. Highly recommend hiring, you won't be disappointed!

Highly recommend...

Connor has a gift. He can take an abstract vision and distill it down to brilliance with pinpoint precision. I can’t imagine working with another person for business needs. His style is unmatched. Additionally, his chill vibe instantly made me feel at ease and allows what energy already exists to be expressed.

Breeun Johnson | Satori

Will hire again for sure...

Hands down one of the best sessions I’ve had. Connor is so creative and makes everything so comfortable. He brought our vision to life!
