"My website was branded carefully to convey a fresh, uncluttered, juicy feel. Warren migrated it over to Wordpress, maintaining the unique look in every way. He researched the best template options for me, and gave me a tutorial so I could easily take the reins. I am not a techie, and he made what I thought would be a hassle a real snap. If you’ve been thinking about a Wordpress site, Warren's your guy."
—Maria Ross, President and Chief Marketing Diva, Red Slice, LLC
Warren helps small businesses and entrepreneurs showcase their companies online. Specializing in migration of static websites to Wordpress, he develops stylish and functional websites that give the owner flexibility in updating the content. No more calls to an expensive webmaster to update your event calendar or content on your media page!
Warren is one-half of Married with Luggage, the couple who blog about their dream of selling everything to travel around the world. He founded MWL Development in 2009 because of his passion for working with small businesses and to help fund the adventure; he and his wife leave on their three-year trip October 1, 2010, and plan to continue to build Wordpress sites from the road. Working exclusively with Wordpress so that his clients can easily maintain and update their own websites, Warren is regularly complimented on his attention to detail, quick turnaround, and clear guidance. Bonus: his wife is a writer and blogger, so he sorta understands you.
"I am amazed by Sharon's boundless creativity. I had worked with other graphic designers and we just weren't speaking the same language. It took Sharon less than a day to perfectly capture the essence of what I was seeking. On the rare occasion that I have notes on her original design, Sharon is always back in a flash with several other ideas. She cares deeply about the quality of her product, and is a total pleasure to work with. I recommend her without reservation!"

In her career as a graphic designer, some of Sharon’s more visible projects were created for Elizabeth Arden and Bliss.

Sharon is married to a journalist and has two beautiful kids and a dog.
