I'm American (Pacific Time Zone). I speak, read, & write perfect English. I enjoy working on websites and that's what I've been doing every day for the last twenty years. I've built hundreds of websites and before that I created computerized production artwork. I understand all aspects of website creation and management including back-end server administration.
Services: Linux, Apache, MySql, PHP, Joomla, WordPress, CMS, SEO, PPC, Backups, Administration, Script Installation, Adding & Updating Content, Social Networking,
Also very capable with html, css, js, jquery, photoshop, and video.
I am also proficient with most graphic formats which include hi-rez, video, animation, logos, website graphics, icons, banners, and photos. I have a Bachelor of the Arts Degree with honors in Electronic Art and a specialty track of production management & video.

I'm good at designing templates but I'm even better at building websites! I've been working with Joomla for 8 years and building websites for over 20. In addition, I have many years of experience as a graphic designer & art director and I'm very capable with Photoshop.
JOOMLA TRAINING & ASSISTANT ($28 hr) - I am happy to schedule a time to meet with you on Skype and walk you through anything that you want help with and to learn.
EMERGENCY SERVICE ($56 hr) - Same day response!
INSTALL ANY SCRIPT ($56) - Need a Joomla component installed? How about a stand-alone PHP script? Perl perhaps? No problem. I will install any licensed commercial or open-source script AND setup the database and configure the program's basic settings in under two hours.
BASIC WEBSITE ($560) - A basic website created from a professional template and completely customized with the client's colors, logo, and content takes about 20 hours to build.
ADVANCED WEBSITE ($1120) - A more advanced website with multiple components and more functionality OR with many pages and shopping cart items takes approximately 40 hours to complete.
LARGE CORPORATE WEBSITE is a full-time project and takes 40 hours per week, ...forever.
COMPLETE BACKUP ($15) - I will make a copy of all of your site's files in addition to the database. This will be a manual supervised process and will be delivered as a compressed archive. Additional off-site copies of your backups will be stored for at least one year.
SEO & PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS ($28) - I will perform a comprehensive analysis of your site and make recommendations for improvement with regard to performance, functionality, and search ranking. You can use the suggestions and reports to hire me, someone else, or make improvements yourself!
JOOMLA MIGRATIONS ($699 and up) - Still running a Joomla 1.0 or 1.5 site? In most cases I can complete a full migration "the right way" in under 25 hours, more complex sites with multiple extension can take 50-80 hours.
JOOMLA UPDATES ($280 and up) - Are you running a Joomla 2.5 site and you're ready to move to 3.4? Some updates go smoothly and can be easily completed in under 5 hours while others might be trickier and take up to 10 hours. Experiencing all the power and smoothness of a new system while eliminating many headaches and hassles will be enjoyed for years.
FREE JOOMLA EXTENSIONS! - I am a developer who works with the best extensions available. Many of the extensions are open-source or gpl licensed. This means they are usually free to use and any fees are just for additional support services. I also have developer's licenses which allow me to share some software. It might be cheaper to hire me to install an extension than to purchase a download or support package.
GUARANTEED SATISFACTION - If you don't believe that I provided a great value or that I didn't fulfill the agreed upon scope of work, just let me know and I'll do whatever I can to help ensure your satisfaction.
These are generalizations for building a website. By using standard libraries and packages you might be able to have them built even faster, if that is your goal. Starting with an existing framework or professional template is a great way to save a bunch of time. I can also create original templates if necessary.
I'm new to Upwork so I don't have a lot of references or a reputation yet but what I am willing to do to make this work, is charge less than half of what I'm typically paid on staff or contract. My current rate on Upwork is only $22 hr (including the fees).
I feel that charging this rate should make me a viable alternative for those who need to outsource but want to help support a fellow American and also for those who want clear communication with someone who reads, writes, and speaks perfect English. In addition, I'm in the Pacific Time Zone.
I'm happy to answer any questions you have.
