Thanks for visiting...
Welcome to my little one page rest stop on the Internet highway.
My schedule is usually pretty booked with a full roster and direct referral work from partners. But please do get in touch. I love to hear from new prospective clients and even if I am booked and cannot assist you I will try my best to refer you to someone who can help showcase your website dreams.
Initial consultations and estimates are always complimentary and I have a rate sheet I can send upon request.
Thanks so much,
Hi my name is Otis...
From Seattle to San Francisco to Reno to Toronto to Montréal, I have worked with small businesses, non-profits, corporations, local entrepreneurs, musicians, artists, and various individuals from all walks of life - building sites that range from single stand-alone pages to large content management solutions.
In 1996 I created my first website and through the next decade I spent time creating for family, friends and personal use. Fast forward just short of a decade later, recovering from two dot.com layoffs in Seattle, I pushed forward, moved to San Francisco and founded Example7, going completely freelance. Today I work with partners and clients globally from my home office based in Montréal, Québec, Canada.
It all started with my first home computer in 1982 at the age of 13. Almost 30 years later and I still love what I do. The only difference between 1982 and today is that now I earn a living for what I love, opposed to asking my parents to stay up late on a school night to geek out.
A little about my background...
Since 2005 I have developed and worked with over 200 Wordpress powered websites with over 100 using custom themes built from scratch.
I have been working within the wedding industry since 2007 and helped to launch Style Me Pretty
in 2007, Ruffled Blog
in 2010, and the brand new Intimate Weddings
in 2013. Other lovely sites include, Erganic Design & Living
, Glamour & Grace
, Lavender & Twine Bride
, Love & Lavender
, Momental Designs
, The November Company
, Simply Chic Events
, Simply Natural Events
, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings
and dozens of others.
Love, life, health, food, music, art, culture. A few keywords that sum up the type of sites I generally work with.
Food and wine? We can go on an educational initiative (Nourish
), read a cookbook (Rebecca Miller Ffrench
), take some classes at a culinary event company (The City Kitchen
), and have a nice Italian dish (Divino
), with a glass of vino (Maybach Family Vineyards
And the beat goes on... Chickabug
, Harvard Business Services
, Holland Interactive
, Lawyers for Clean Water
, North American Veterinary Regenerative Medicine Association
, RoomService Interior
, Scott Nichols Gallery
, Sprus Events
, Zoom Photography
It was also a blast to help launch sites for (amazing) design partners I work with! Rena B. Design
, Martha Cooper Design
, Mintwich Design
, Spitfiregirl Design
, and Two Brunettes
! Other trusted partners include, 26 Brix
, Bullet Marketing
, Grounded Designs
, and Wasson Design
I have also worked with internet archives (Internet Archive, UbuWeb), media outlets (MuchMusic, WFMU), publishers (Blast Books, Cool and Strange Music Magazine), artists (Jim Flora, Drew Friedman, Maira Kalman, J.D. King, Rick Meyerowitz), musicians (Brute Force, Jean-Jacques Perrey, Beth Sorrentino), and even an island
Plus my own band
website is developed in Wordpress with a custom theme.
A few words from ...
Otis is the rarest of all finds: a web developer with the eye of an artist. He writes efficient, clean code, easily implements any bells and whistles you need, and applies an attention to aesthetic detail that's second to none. And all this while staying on budget and on schedule! Working with Otis isn't just easy — it's fun
. I honestly can't recommend him highly enough!
— Heather Dalton, Chickabug
Example 7 is everything you want for a web project — Otis is highly professional, responsive, fast, and committed to quality. Outstanding work!
— Kirk Bergstrom, President, WorldLink, NourishLife.org
I've worked with two dozen professional web designers over the past ten years on six or seven sites. Otis of Example7 is more reliable, talented, and cooperative than any. He is meticulous in his coding, efficient with site navigation, and patient with the client. His warm sense of humor adds a personal touch to doing business. He creates a web look that is appealing and organized, but never overdone. And what he creates for you makes you look smart for hiring him.
— Irwin Chusid, JimFlora.com
With a minimal amount of supervision, Otis is able to take the ball and run with it, efficiently, imaginatively and on time. He is extremely intuitive, and creative, and he is completely self-motivated, which helps to motivate all those around him. I highly recommend his replete conceptual/technical abilities and engaging people skills.
