Writer & WordPress Geek
Hey, I’m Jovi!
An experienced writer, web designer, WordPress geek, graphic design nerd, and just generally a pretty JOVIal human (see what I did there?!).
From Word Docs to WordPress:
I’ve been writing for public audiences for more than 15 years. I started as a spoken word artist based out of Sacramento, which eventually landed me a gig as a live radio show host and news journalist. I’ve done freelance work in both prose and poetry, and most recently I’ve ventured into the world of tech writing. The first website I designed was my own in 2008; as a performing artist, having a user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing website was an absolute must. Since then, I’ve designed a variety of different sites for a wide range of clients and I’ve had a blast with every single one!

All of the services listed below are great and all, but what’s really great is that I love doing each of them. So, not only are you getting quality work, but you’re also signing up for just about the happiest working relationship of all time! Feel free to Email Me if you want more details about any of the services.
I love creating websites that look cool and function cooler. There are a lot of things to consider when laying out a website today; from typography and color palette to mobile optimization and SEO– I got you!
Did you know that more than 30% of all websites today are built using WordPress?! There’s a good reason for that, it’s the most user-friendly CMS (Content Management System) to work with.
I have been a writer for hire for more than 15 years now. I have specialized in tech documentation, AP journalism, op-ed journalism, special event poetry, copy-writing, and content development.
I do all of the pretty things: business cards, letterheads,
flyers, social media collateral, posters, stickers, and so much more!
Divi is the leading premium theme for WordPress and I’ve been using it to build websites on a near exclusive basis since its inception.
If you have a website crisis or can’t get a file to work in its current format or need an event flyer ASAP, I won’t ever leave you hanging.
Below are the hourly rates for each of the services I provide. If you’re interested in a per project budget or proposal, send me a request via the buttons below and I’ll make that happen.
