Through MWS Media, I provide a variety of creative services to authors, musicians, independent creators, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and anyone looking to bring their story to fruition and to the world.
Since the turn of the century, I’ve drawn from my three decades of experience as a creator, storyteller, and marketer to bring a service-based, customer- and user-focused perspective to solving your problems and telling — or helping you tell — your story.
I help bring creative endeavors to fruition, to market, and to an audience. Can I help you?

No matter your creative endeavor, from indie author to small business to online marketer, a website is essential to your success. It’s your business card, your storefront, and your always-available proxy on the Internet. And a self-hosted website built on the WordPress content management platform is the most popular and best-supported choice. Two and a half million of the world’s most popular sites agree.
I’ve been building, customizing, and managing self-hosted WordPress websites for over ten years. Whether you need a simple “out of the box” web presence or a full-featured site, design customization, or ongoing upkeep and maintenance, I can help you as I’ve helped dozens of clients as diverse as major motion picture studios, literacy non-profits, municipalities, neighborhood groups, independent authors, musicians, actors, and so many others.

Regardless of your creative entrepreneurial endeavor, when it comes to your progress and continued growth, it’s important to recognize that what you’re able to do is not necessarily the best thing you should do. Your job is to make things and to evangelize those things. Everything else that distracts you from “job one” — even if you are capable of doing those things — takes away from your creative and financial bottom line.
I’ve been working in the online space since the late 1990s as an independent creator and author, as a web developer, a social media marketer, a digital producer, a podcaster… in other words, my experience in this space is deep and wide. If there’s something you need done online, chances are I’ve either done it or can effectively discover how to do it. For you.
From creating graphics or written copy for the web, to optimizing your website for search engines, to managing your social media presence on Facebook or Twitter, to research, to podcast and video editing and production… to ebook or audiobook creation… I’ve done it all. I’m your guy!
Need something else? Just ask.
