I build and manage high performance static websites for clients who need the fastest and most reliable web presence possible.
I am based in Portland, Maine, and serve clients throughout the country.
I also support Wordpress sites and develop custom Wordpress themes—although, for the reasons below, I think static sites present the best solution for many of my clients.

Why Static Sites?
Counterintuitive though it may sound, static websites are fast becoming a better option for many web applications than their dynamic counterparts.
Static websites consist of pre-built HTML pages, as opposed to dynamic sites created by software like Wordpress and Drupal.
Others have said it better:
- Why Static Site Generators Are the Next Big Thing from Smashing Magazine.
- An Introduction to Static Site Generators from the David Walsh Blog.
The most commonly-mentioned downside of static sites is the need for a developer or HTML-fluent editor to update the content.
However, I believe this natural collaboration brings many potential benefits as well. Code and content go hand-in-hand. When developers and clients work together to develop a site's content as well as its structure, both benefit and the final product is much stronger.
I look forward to discussing your project with you.
