Hey there! My name is Marc and web and user experience (UX) design is my jam.

I specialize in designing websites with the goal of converting cold/warm traffic into paying customers & clients. My design style leans on building clean & simple experiences that minimize the hoops your customers have to jump through to start doing business with you.

I’ve been designing and building web experiences for about 4 1/2 years now, and I’ve established a long list of happy clients. I would love to add you to the list.

But first…here’s my credentials:

What makes me unique?

Here’s 2 strengths of mine that set me apart from the crowd:
1. I don’t prescribe solutions until I fully understand the problem. This leaves me with a portfolio of prosperous clients, instead of a graveyard of nice-looking websites.
2. I build websites that are intended to convert traffic to customers & clients.

Every decision I make from the get go will be aligned with a specific business goal that we’ll define together, and I’ll make sure you trust me to make it happen.

We had worked with Marc before and were thrilled with him, so we specifically requested him for this project. He is one of our favorite developers, he's an excellent communicator, he provides extremely creative and workable solutions, and he's fast. He even provided a short step-by-step video for our client to help them apply his solution to future page content. Very impressed, very appreciative.

Marc is outstanding. Highly organized and effective. He is a clear and direct communicator, easy to share ideas with and brainstorm best approaches to the project. Many times throughout this project, he went above and beyond to ensure that we were on the same page and project the objectives were clear. I appreciated his willingness to schedule check-in phone calls to track progress and discuss more complicated issues. He was very comfortable and confident when making recommendations to improve the user experience on my site - always having the customer needs top of mind. I highly recommend Marc and look forward to hiring him again for my next project.

Well, we had some disagreement over a lingering vimeo streaming issue, and Marc offered me a refund. His services were more important to me than the refund. Thank you.
