Who I Am

I am a craftsman, a tinkerer, an Internet concierge. A guide, too. A freelance webmaster.

I make websites. In Wordpress and Drupal for the most part, but also elegantly simple sites with Hugo site generator.

The sites I build are almost always bilingual and frequently follow accessibility guidelines for people with impaired vision.

I create animations for websites, and slideshows, too. When the chosen technology allows, these original animations are interactive.

As part of a team I create videos, with a penchant for content based on interviews as well as videos used for teaching and training. I also do photography.

With my associate, we can prepare or polish content for your website, including writing and editing copy in French and in English.

I do quite a lot of configuration of online services such as stores (panierdachat.com), payment gateways (PayPal), interactive forms (JotForm), and online chats (LiveChat).

I offer attentive and personalized web hosting services with Pentafolio’s servers as well as domain name registration.

A lot of my workday is spent cleaning up, making large and small repairs, and updating website infrastructure and extensions for my clients.

I coordinate and integrate social media into websites, including email, FaceBook, Instagram, and Twitter.

I am also a guide, helping clients to navigate the many options and opportunities that Internet offers. I know how to listen, when to encourage moving forward, and when to proceed with caution.

In former lives, when I still had red hair, I did many other things. But I’ll leave that a mystery. Gaucho on the grassy plains of Argentina? Small-town film projectionist? Engineer on an offshore oil rig? Founder of a cultural center? Guru in an ashram? Newspaper editor? Public servant? Beekeeper?… In any case, that’s in the past. The future is so much more exciting!
