Web Design and Development

From a very young age... since the inception of the internet, John started building websites as a way to connect with friends and families overseas. He began by creating one of the first of what is now known a blog in 1997 utilizing Microsoft Front Page and later learned how to code websites from scratch with HTML, JavaScrip and Flash. His early websites contained dynamic photo galleries, embedded music and video, animations and more. He started building websites professionally before graduating from high school for the businesses of his friends and family which was quite a accomplishment in the early 2000s now common place amongst youths since the creation of easy to use content management systems such as Wordpress and services such as Wix and Squarespace. Now... with over 20 John Valera has added a vast array of skills to compliment his experience in web including:

  • Video Production
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Sales and Business Development
  • Social Media... and more.

In a saturated environment anybody can build a website these days but not like John who is a natural born storyteller and sales person at heart who understands the very fiber of the ineternet beyond lines of code and streams of multimedia. He touts,

"A web page is nothing more than a medium... Like a book or a movie... There are good ones and there are bad ones that overwhelm you with information or force you to buy things. When I build a website, I do it to tell a story to reach into your soul to capture your imagination and inspire. I want to share your story. That's my passion and that's what separates me from the competition. For me, it's more than a job... it's more than a way to make some money."
