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!
