I’ve been a web developer for over 5 years, I published my first Fiction book in November 2017 and am working on a second unrelated superhero title. I’ve been a part of 4 podcasts, of which 2 are done and 2 are on hiatus. Talking HTML is about web development for beginners and Poorly Written is all about my writing process and the current book that is in progress.

I am currently taking on new clients and projects. No work too small no work too large, I’ll do my best to accommodate you and your needs.

Website Development

While I don’t specialize in logo creation, I have dabbled in the art and created the logos for the TalkCast Network, the Talking HTML Podcast, the Talking Fire Podcast, and the Burning Locks podcast.

Currently I am offering fully handcrafted and personalized websites as well as WordPress websites in association with custom HTML and CSS coding.

For full website creation I prefer to do a project quote versus an hourly rate. For projects that require only a little bit of time I would use an hourly rate. Prices are subject to change, but never during the middle of a project.

“Tom is great to work with! This was my first experience setting up a website and he was great about communicating with me through the entire process. He gave me a lot of suggestions and listened to all of my ideas and was great about letting me see things as they were in progress. Everything came together much faster than I expected. I would definitely recommend him and we love the site! Thanks Tom!”
