At Lireo Designs, I offer personalized service and listen carefully to your needs and business goals. Based on conversations with you and careful research, I define your audience to learn what visitors might want and expect from your website.

One nonprofit client received an unexpected $50,000 donation from a website visitor who discovered the nonprofit’s achievements from their site. View some of the sites I’ve created in my portfolio.

My Background

Since beginning work on the web in 1997, I’ve seen the transition from table-based layouts, to cascading stylesheets, to mobile-friendly web design.

My first website was my church’s website, which I coded in Notepad.

I loved creating websites and quickly expanded my web knowledge. Soon after, I was creating sites for nonprofits, small businesses, and consultants.

When I reached the point of wanting more formal web education, I returned to college and earned certificates in web technology, web application development, and web user experience.

I worked in higher education for four years, as web developer and web analyst on the web services team at Washtenaw Community College, helping to improve the user experience and accessibility of the college website.

For me, it’s important to give back to the web community and help others. I’m an organizer for three local meetup groups:

In the past, I was co-organizer for Detroit User Experience and the Michigan User Experience Professionals’ Association.

When I’m not on the computer, I can be found reading, shooting photos, bicycling, or bird watching.
