Tana DeanMy enthusiasm for technology shows in an ability to create website design, function and management that works. Since the beginning my clients have been through referrals, people who know my abilities, dependability and willingness to work with them in creating a website that represents their business thoughtfully and successfully.

Technology has been a part of my life since 1980. Beginning as a typesetter…yes, before desktop computers. I built one of the first computer design departments using Mac’s in 1984 and worked closely with Linotype (Adobe) in the very beginnings of home-based computing.

Since 2008 I’ve been building websites, the largest, which I still manage is for Deep Spring Center for Meditation and Spiritual Inquiry. It was re-designed in 2015 using WordPress. This large site is always stretching my skills and imagination with a focus on marketing.

I discovered WordPress through blogging as I was also discovering and developing skills in website development. In 2013 I began attending WordPress meetings in Ann Arbor, MI and discovered a special group of people through the WP Meetups,  plus I was chosen to speak at the 2015 Ann Arbor Wordcamp.
 
This work is challenging, fun, difficult, exciting and keeps me growing.
