My name is Chad. I am a designer and programmer in Richmond, VA.

I make good websites. I have been working with Christian non-profits and businesses in the digital space for over 20 years, using best practices even before they were buzzwords:

Meaningful and relevant experiences that are delightful to use (UX)
Semantic, WCAG compliant HTML structures for people of all abilities
Content that reflows on any device, from mobile first to desktop
Coding that is compatible and defensive, handling unknowns and edge cases
Smooth interactions and fast sites that achieve top testing scores
Tested and refined to maximize bandwidth and ensure clearer communication

I understand both the strengths and limitations of the Internet, and how to make it work for us. I solve needs sensibly for both clients and their customers, and the sites I build are simple to maintain and extend.


Experience includes:

Web Product Manager at International Mission Board
Research, planning, design, development, evaluation and optimization of high-profile websites for large missions organization with growing donor base
Technical Lead and Consultant at SolaSites
Viable business platform to maintain missionary presence abroad, with content management system for church websites and local development team
Missionary and Bible Translator at International Mission Board
Contextual strategies for church planting and Bible translation in the Himalayas, Scripture Engagement for church leaders, teaching, and advising the Bodo New Testament translation project
Webmaster at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Scalable content management system, UX, web standards, multimedia content, social media syndication, and faculty and staff training for large collection of websites including seminary, college, Albert Mohler and Russell Moore
Webmaster at The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood
Audience growth for non-profit with content-driven website and marketing materials

I studied design at University of Buffalo, theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and linguistics at Dallas International University. I have a UX certification from Nielsen Norman Group.

I was ordained to Christian ministry in 2009 and worked for a decade among the poor and remote in the Himalayas. I loved that place and expressed a bit of that in the mountain backdrop on this site. Web work came with me — like Paul the missionary’s tent-making — traveling easily and often paying the way. I learned the benefits of lightweight websites on slow, spotty networks. I saw how web technology extends our reach in ministry. I grew in cross-cultural understanding as I worked alongside leaders in churches, schools, and offices.

Many generous people have helped me on my way, professionally and personally. It has become a special joy to help others along. Freely received, freely given.

My greatest work is personal. I love my wife and five children. I have come to love Jesus Christ and all that is his: the Church, the Bible, the nations. I would love to chat about any of these things.

I built this small site line by line because I enjoy my craft and put in heart. I remember where I came from, when the web was young and fun. (Go on, right click and view page source.)
