About John

I started making websites over 15 years ago, that's a long time when you consider that the world wide web (www) was only opened to the public in 1991. I've been creating websites for more than ½ the total time that websites have been in existence.

I started doing it as a hobby, graduated magna cum laude with a degree in web development, worked as a developer and project manager for a few different web design/marketing companies and am now the lead developer, project manager, and manager of Grand Rapids Web Solutions, LLC. A web design company in Grand Rapids Michigan offering a wide array of WordPress and bootstrap web design and development options. Along with designing and developing websites, and creating my own WordPress plugins and themes, I also dabble in search engine optimization (seo), social media marketing, and general small business consultation.

Besides being a driving force behind the premier web design company in the West Michigan area, I work with a branch of GRWS that offers low cost WordPress websites for churches and religious organizations, I am the web manager of several websites for a Lansing based law firm, manage the marketing for my families concrete countertop business, I do some miscellaneous side web design and development based side projects, and I also contribute to several WordPress, web design and development blogs. If it is web related I have probably tried it.

I often take on small solo projects along side of my work load with GR Web LLC so that I can learn and test new design and development techniques. While a lot of my clients are in Grand Rapids and the greater West Michigan area, I work with people all over the United States. If you need an expert web developer with years of experience and a college degree in this highly technical field, then feel free to contact me.
