FreshPeek began in 2003. I have been able to create close personal long-term relationships with most my clients. Preferring to work directly with owners, my goal has always been to see the smile of satisfaction on their faces.
Coming from the Windows desktop and .net environment, I was very pleased to experience PHP and MySQL running on Apache servers to be a more stable environment and loved the Open Source concept with over 60 websites created.
Providing the complete design & development of websites along with back end, server and hosting administration on dedicated servers has enabled me to become familiar with all aspects of serving up websites in the internet.
Began using Content Management Systems such as Wordpress & Joomla over 10 years ago because of the large amount of customizable components and plugins already developed by the Open Source community. At this time, I have to chosen to use WordPress as the base platform.
Design, customize, maintain, update and technical support of all my websites. Shopping carts, video/image galleries, forums, social, blogs, email systems, membership systems, events, Facebook, SEO, custom APIs with Infusionsoft and other systems, custom visitor stats, custom sales funnel analysis and a vast array of components and plugins.
