Emily Sparkle…web designer extraordinaire. Between her artistic vision and technical skills, Emily is a phenomenal web designer. The process of getting a website up and running can be confusing and overwhelming. Emily is also exceptional about soothing the anxiety that comes up around getting it all "done" and "right". She exudes an inner calm and confidence around the work she does that just makes one trust the presentation of one’s business in her capable hands.

I'm working on my own website. Really, I am. But I'm working on a lot of other stuff too.
Watch this space for more detail or you can stop by, like and share my Facebook page.
But mostly, the proof is in the pudding, so check out some of the sites I've created:
My primary project for much of the past eight years has been the website for the metaphysical shop i founded -- Inspirit Common (now Inspirit Crystals) in Northampton, Massachusetts. I was the chief cook and bottle washer for this site, wrangling much of the content and creative until we sold the business in 2012. Our Constant Contact newsletter campaign earned me a 2010 All Star Award for good email practices and response metrics. Our online stores offered eclectic tools for the spiritual seeker and has taught me a lot about e-commerce, Zen Cart and working with drop-ship vendors!
