Extensive Expertise

With almost 20 years of experience, I’ve developed a unique process designed to engage my clients through every step of the process. I take a unique approach to WordPress-powered websites by splitting the web development phase into two stages. It’s a basic principle – you wouldn’t decorate your house without a well thought strategy, well-built foundation and framework. So then, why would you do that with your website?

Specialized Services

Research & Discovery

Once properly introduced, our first goal is to listen and understand the goals and needs of your business. After some research and discovery, I’ll propose a solution intended to meet, or exceed, your expectations – with the intent of delivering on-time and on-budget. Then, we can decide whether we are a good fit.


SEO + Content Writing

Great content is useless without a nuanced approach to search engine optimization (SEO). My SEO/content writer’s creative and advertising experience has made her uncommonly adept at seamlessly meshing marketing keywords and quality content for a wide range of industries.

WordPress CMS Training

Experience has taught me there is no reason to wait until visual design is finished to begin content. With a functioning prototype of your WordPress website built, we’ll train you to manage your content with the WordPress CMS (Content Management System).

User Experience (UX)

User experience wireframes are the blueprints for the website – like those for a house created by architects. Before beginning the design process, I create a working prototype wireframe of the website, incorporate the base WordPress install, scripts, and plugins on a staging server.

Visual Interface Design

The bulk of my experience is visual user interface design for the web. Following modern standards and trends, especially for responsive, WordPress-powered website design is a critical component to my success. I design handcrafted user and mobile-friendly experiences.

WordPress Web Dev

As a full-stack designer, I also specialize in developing mobile-ready, WordPress-powered websites – leveraging the Bootstrap theme framework for optimized performance, security and optimization.

What My Clients Are Saying…

I had the pleasure of working with Jason to reconstruct and make my website innovate, creative and most importantly functional. Jason was an extremely great person to work with. I have had other people work on my website in the past and they never provided me with the individual attention and great customer service that Jason provided. He ensured everything was to my likings and provided individual training for myself and also took the time to answer any and all questions. The duration of recreating my website was very streamed lined and effective.

It’s been really cool to watch evolve over the past couple of months. The site, along with Jason (aka Knarley Charlie), has found its voice and spreading positivity throughout the community and the Janet Jackson community – affectionately referred to as the JTribe. Janet’s Unbreakable is on the verge of a new movement. Janet is “awake” and Knarley Charlie is urging us to also wake up. His Periscope episodes are a cool way to interact and there’s also a Tagboard to keep up with others in real time throughout the social media universe. Check it out and let’s keep the conversation going!

Jason (a.k.a. Knarley Charlie) is the rock I stand on and the secret to my success! I have spent thousands of dollars on do-it-yourself courses, programs and trainings and never once was able to use any of it in a profitable way!  Then, I found Knarley Charlie! Jason knows his stuff and got me online in a way that accurately and beautifully tells my story and serves me in a professional way that truly resonates with those I seek to serve. Do whatever it takes to work with him and skyrocket your success today!

Success Coach + Spiritual Guide, Mark Hollenstein

We’ve worked with Knarley Charlie for years now, through several versions of our web site, and each one has received many complements from our guests. Jason went beyond just designing and coding this last time, to add functionality that allowed us to have more control than ever, eliminating the need for a third party resource. It’s now mobile friendly as well, which as anyone who’s paying attention knows, is critical today. Working with Jason is not only critical to our marketing efforts, it’s truly a pleasure to work with him as well. I can’t recommend Knarley Charlie highly enough.
