Hello there...

... welcome to Path of Crumbs, my personal website.

I liked the way you clicked on that!

I am a project manager, web designer / developer in Southern California and my passion is to help people realize their dreams, and help their audience find them.

Working as a designer and project manager for several years, I have learned a bit about web development, content creation and climbing up through the ranks of search engine placement.

I can help with site development, graphics, datebase creation and content creation. But whatever you need, from a logo design, banner for your business to a complete website, – I, or one of my many talented friends... can help.

Do you need a website? Do you need website content or a few blog posts to get your blog going? I am here for you!

...lets be friends!

How can I help you?



"The secret of getting ahead is getting started."

Here you can view some of my web design / development work. This is not all as I've worked as a member of many site development teams where the content is private or protected.

My client privacy is a priority. I take pride in listening to my clients!

Web design must present the clear single voice of the client. On the web, there are many voices, so we need to be clear in who we are and what we have to offer. Our online presence is a combination of visual presentation and functionality.

All my web design work is done here in Southern California, and fortified by my years of project management and experience.
