About me

Hi...I'm Rochell!

Photo of RochellI am an Atlanta based web developer. Originally I'm from St. Louis but moved to Georgia in 1994 to attend graduate school at The University of Georgia.

Building websites started as a hobby for me several years ago with a "little" HTML knowledge and some free time. After many years of teaching high school science, I decided to turn my former hobby into a new career. I spent a year in the M.S. in Applied Computer Science program at The University of West Georgia but decided to continue my education with the help of books and lots of online resources. I taught myself a few programming languages and photo editing (using GIMP). To add more to my skillset I completed the code immersion course at Tech Talent South here in Atlanta.

My current work utilizes HTML5 with CSS3 and where additional functionality is needed; JavaScript or Ruby (along with Ruby on Rails) is used. I also offer websites built using Wordpress for customers who want a reasonably priced & lightning fast build that will allow them to maintain their own site.

When I'm not attached to a computer; I enjoy traveling, kayaking and running on trails.

  • Wordpress 90%
  • HTML, CSS, JS 80%
  • Social Media Marketing 70%
  • GIMP - Photo Editing 60%
  • Ruby, Rails, PHP 60%

Website build costs & completion times vary. Larger, custom-coded builds with all the bells & whistles may take a couple of months while a small brochure website built with Wordpress; with some custom features and styling, may take as little as 1 week! Clients are "in the loop" throughout the build via a link to the project build on Trello. You will be able to see what work has been completed, what work is left and what is needed from you to finish your new website.

The basic process for a new website:
Initial Consultation: can be in person or on the phone, project details / scope of the project is written out, client makes initial payment (1/3 - 1/2 the project cost), contract/work agreement is signed.
1st Deliverable: basically a mostly completed site, client will get to make 1 - 2 rounds of revisions, may take as little as 1-2 days for small revisions to be completed, site will be tested for performance & responsiveness.
Final Deliverable: files are ready to be delivered and the website is ready to launch. Final payment is due & must be paid in full before files will be transfered or website is uploaded to a hosting site.

I can also provide services for loading and launching your site, maintaining your site, or I can teach you how to maintain your Wordpress site.
