Hi, my name is Kegan Ball. I fell in love with putting my ideas out on the internet over 20 years ago and have been building websites for fun and profit ever since. I love to show others how they too can put their ideas out there for the world to see on the internet. I have a background in design, coding, business, and marketing. I can show you how to make your website ideas a reality. ............................................................................................................................. I have been using WordPress as my primary content management system for client websites since 2009. I have built a wide variety of client websites from very basic information websites, to higher-end membership websites with streaming video libraries. In addition to working for mostly small businesses, I have been on several teams working for medium and large companies as well. While most of the work I do is building great websites for clients, I also do one-on-one coaching with clients who want to learn how to do things themselves.

Hello! This is my story.

I started designing graphically in high school. The journalism teacher let me use the computers in his classroom and I learned how to use Photoshop, Illustrator, and other graphic design software. My passion and interest in learning how to design using software really caught the attention of the journalism teacher and he decided to start a graphic design class to give myself and others a more complete training in design. I ended up being asked to design things by friends and family and my skills grew.

After high school, I started the Graphic Design program at the community college. It was then that I was first introduced to designing websites. I was so amazed the first time I saw someone who had built their own website. I was fascinated and poured myself into learning how to build websites. I found websites that trained me how to build my own website using just html and images.

After college, I got my first job building a new website for a company. After working there for a year, I joined the Navy and served for 4 years. It was a great experience but was ready to get back to civilian life.

I went back to building websites after updating my skills and have been making my mark on the internet ever since.

In 2009, I discovered WordPress and was immediately struck by how much easier it made the work of building websites. Even though I know how to build websites from scratch using code, with WordPress I’m able to get to a finished product so much quicker. I can combine all different tools to make a website do whatever I need it to do.

Most of my work since then has been using WordPress and the huge selection of available plugins to build client websites. I love to help clients grow their business by improving their marketing efforts using their websites.
