Creative web and mobile app developer for 20+ years

Hello. My name is Larry Collett and I have been a web and mobile app developer for over 20 years. While I am not a theme or plugin programmer, I know Wordpress design extremely well and consider myself an expert. I have taught Wordpress classes as well as built Wordpress websites from concept to completion. I believe in sharing ideas to make a website or mobile app better than what it may be. I’m very transparent and share probably more information than you need, but I like my clients to be well informed and empowered with that knowledge to manage their website or app. My philosophy has always been to give my clients what they want and what they didn’t know they wanted. For example, you may not know you need a website backup system that makes a copy of your website daily so in case the unfortunate incident happens that your website is lost, you have a daily back to restore from in less than 10 minutes. This is what I share with my clients that they didn’t know they wanted. I founded and sold a 9-year-old web and mobile app development company called netGALAXY Studios in August 2019 to spend more time with my family and a non-profit that I helped start. During my lead at netGALAXY Studios, I rolled my sleeves up and coded with my team building Wordpress websites and mobile apps built on the Ionic Framework platform. I'm a MEAN stack developer as well as native developer using Xcode and Android Studio. Prior to Ionic, we built apps natively using XCode and Android Studio. I prefer using the Ionic Framework now because it is one codebase for Apple and Android apps keeping costs down. I am also the co-founder of Charleston Leaders, a 501(c)(3) organization with a mission of fostering and developing leaders in our community. They do that with various programming focused on leaders and leadership development. I previously worked for Media General, which was acquired by Nexstar Media, and I was the Regional Interactive Media Director for the NBC stations in both Charleston and Savannah. Prior to my tenure at Media General, I helped launch Charleston.net for the Post and Courier. I am married to Summerville native, Rebecca Collett, who is an Investigative Reporter and News Anchor at WCBD-TV 2. We have three boys named Naaman, Beaudrot (Beau) and Ryan. I'm passionate about community involvement and I serve on multiple boards and committees for various organizations in the Charleston, SC area.

"I have a publishing business and have hired many people over the years from Upwork to complete all sorts of jobs related to publishing and marketing books. Larry Collett is absolutely the best freelancer I've ever hired from Upwork. He was competent, professional, dedicated to making sure the job was exactly the way I wanted it, and went beyond the call of duty to do so. In addition to all that, Larry is a very nice guy who I enjoyed working with immensely. I very rarely say this, but I can recommend Larry without reservations to anyone who needs his skills and experience. I paid him a 50% bonus, something I've never done before. I was that happy with the end result of his work."

Testimonials

Endorsements from past clients

"Larry Collett is one of the brightest IT professionals I've ever known. As the owner of a recruiting and staffing business I moved most of my business processes to the cloud several years ago. Larry played an instrumental role in the process by developing a very robust website, integrating a job board from our ATS into the site, installing updates and updating our SEO just to name a small part of what he did. Whenever there was a problem, which was rare, Larry would respond very quickly to fix the issue. His knowledge of WordPress is truly amazing. But here's more. As great an IT professional as Larry is, he's a better person. Larry strongly supports our community with a variety of efforts. He's a great husband, father and friend. He's the best!"
