Who I Am

Owner of Cleveland, Ohio based imageNation Web Experts, I am a multi-faceted web developer, architect, and designer. My background and interest in social causes, psychology / communications, programming, and design have landed me in books like Howard Rheingold’s Smart Mobs, and Curt Harler’s Beyond the Browser. Part of the COSE Venture Quest winning start-up team, I’m also an enthusiastic entrepreneur.

My love of innovating has lead me to create an artificial intelligence human-like interface called Zoe-bot. She talks with you online, and can be used in a variety of applications ranging from a salesperson, chat partner, language teacher, and more. My wearable computer creation (back before the days of smart phones) allowed me to get access to information on the go, and was featured in Howard Rheingold’s book Beyond the Browser. Finally, I was a prominent member of COSE Venture Quests winning team in the Start-Up business category.

My love of sharing has lead me to teach STEM course and Introductory programming at Lorain County Community College. In my earlier days I taught English to children in Ecuador, and practical program and web usage to real estate agents at Hondros College. Additionally I have lead my own workshops on Social Media and the Web. Finally, I enjoy speaking publicly and sharing my ideas as I have at the Securing New Ground Conference.

My love of people has lead me to study at the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland, completing their 18-month Gestalt Training Program where I learned about myself in a fuller way, and enhanced my communication skills. Furthermore, I currently take graduate level courses in counseling and therapy to enhance my awareness and abilities to connect with people in a transparent and caring way.

Doing more than others:

We love our clients, and  put our heart and soul into your project. We treat each website like a piece of functional art — it’s not enough to simply design, simply architect, or simply develop your web presence. It takes all of these aspects, combined, to make a website magical.  With 15 years experience with the web, we make magic!

The Process

We begin by listening to you. Then, we listen to your needs even more. It is only when we understand your wants and needs that we begin the web architecture and web design processes. We give you a customer area, and project area to collaborate with you and organize the web development processes. We organize the process for you and you know where we are at each step of the way. At every step, you are invited to give feedback and we hear you! We continue to work with you through the web development phase of your project in an organic and agile way. Finally, we add SEO and Social Media pages to round-out your web marketing, and are thrilled to hear your applause and cheers when we go live with your new website!

The Vision

We sincerely want our customers to succeed and to be engaged in the development of their new website. In an era when companies are more interested in selfish profit and wham-bam approaches to giving you impersonal, straight off the conveyer belt products, we give you functional art that represents you and your unique services, products, and gifts. We envision a world that appreciates difference and skilled hands-on workmanship of by-gone days. We are passionate in our philosophy, and you’ll experience that passion through our processes and your one-of-a-kind website.
