How I Develop WordPress Websites
This is my process for WordPress development
You need more than just a generic theme. Generic themes carry a TON of bloat.
Easy to Edit
Manage content yourself, with ease. I build a backend experience as well as a front end one.
I build sites with speed and efficiency that no off-the-shelf theme can match.
Built to Last
The web changes fast. I build WordPress sites that easily adapt, so you don’t need a new site every few years.

From my WordPress Development Clients
Kegan built my website and did a FABULOUS job. I would recommend his work (and working with him) to anyone – like shouting from the rooftops style. My reasons? Proficiency. He has a terrific portfolio of work, which initially drew me in, but then a deep understanding of coding and creating WordPress sites. I had a lot of customized backend concepts I wanted to employ, and was never disappointed in his execution thereof. Partnership and Thoughtfulness. Kegan listened to everything I wanted and then adapted the website continually to my company vision, checking in frequently. I felt like I was truly partnering with him in the website development. He’s very detail oriented. Value. I got a lot for my money, and even upon completion of my project Kegan was quickly available to make changes and updates, which are critical to the success of a startup, online business like mine.
