Webovator

My goal is to raise enough money to fly to visit my fiancée in the Philippines in April 2013. So help me reach that goal by awarding me your project, and I will be forever grateful. Actually, I left Freelancer a few years ago as my own company got too busy to take on any freelance work. I have since grown bored with web design and have moved on to start a new business as a wedding DJ. It\'s a lot more fun, but this is the slow season (Winter) so as of November 2012, I am back on Freelancer for a few months to pick up a few extra projects in time for the holidays. Anyways, there are many skilled designers on , but none of them work as hard as I do, to make sure you are completely happy. I have seen some bidders accept jobs and just repost them, looking for other people to do the work! Not me, that\'s not how I roll. I have been doing web design since 1998, while attending graphic design school in Phoenix (1999-2000), and I honed my programming skills while finishing my degree in Information Technology at Bryant & Stratton College (Buffalo, New York). After growing to detest network support and eliminating that as a career option, I finally made it official and launched my own web design/development firm in 2007, to focus on web design full time. I did this full-time for the last 5 years, while raising three kids as a single dad. Now that they are all in school, I have moved on to my true passion: music--it gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling deep down inside... I have a team of 5 developers and 3 designers who are skilled, professional, and ready to take on any project, large or small. Once you have worked with me once, my sincere hope is that you will choose Webovator for all of your future design and development goals. I won\'t charge an arm and a leg for a project that should only cost an arm, but I always appreciate a client who communicates well and pays on time. You\'ll appreciate having an American handle your project, able to chat on phone or Skype whenever you have questions. Please view the feedback others have left, before choosing Webovator as your service provider. Here are some of the recent comments other satisfied buyers have left: ------------------------------------------ \"Very good service true professional, [the] work was completed before deadline in fact I went to bed and woke up project was completed, exactly as I asked for. The work was to the highest standard and was more than I had asked for, the staff were very helpful, and I will use again-in fact has already done another project for me. Accept this bidder with confidence\" ------------------------------------------ \"Amazing! Chris went way beyond my expectations, carrying out additional HTML and CSS work where he saw necessary.

Thank you Chris\" ------------------------------------------ \"Chris did excellent work, and went beyond expectations. I hope that he will work with me in the future. Thanks. A+++ Comment this feedback\" ------------------------------------------ \"Chris is amazing. He is helpful, talented and delivers on time. My project was completed ahead of time, following the briefing and exceeded my expectations. I would pay extra for this guy simply for the reliability and helpfullness factor. I wholeheartedly recommend him.\"

They are very honest and thorough about my needs and did my website better than expected. If I would ask for a change here and a change there, no problem, it was done. Chris was extremely attentive to accuracy and detail. Thanks again, William Patterson”
