Brendon Barnett, IT, WebDeveloper
My passion is to provide every customer with a high quality, professional service for a reasonable and reachable price. I make myself available by ensuring that each project is tuned to fit the needs and personality of each client.
Working with the most updated and advanced open-source technology, your web applications can be versatile and comprehensive at a great cost! Many of today’s web sites are run by Content Management Systems (CMS) or blog engines, such as this site. It is with this new, wideley available technology that your content or products can reach a more focused audience. In addition to using the most current web technology, I bring a personal touch to each project by providing media content with photography or custom graphic design.
Whether you are selling a product, advertising a service, or just making your content available to the world, I have the right solution for you!

Laurie is a rockstar! She is patient, hardworking, creative and always on trend. Laurie’s inspired my brand both personally and professionally, and along the way not only helped me to design a beautiful, functional website but she taught me valuable skills along the way so that I could do it myself (ala carte) in the future. I highly recommend Laurie to anyone looking to achieve the next level in their professional market.
