About Me

I am a Web Developer

Hello. I’m Mike.

I am a freelance Web Developer located in Columbus, Ohio.  I have been asking the question, “How would you like your web?” since 1997.  To you I ask the same question and would love to hear from you about where it is you want to take your online business.

Here’s a bit more about me.

As a youngster, I was always kinda nerdy.  I don’t mean in the pocket protector kind of way.  More like I just always loved tech, gadgets and stuff like that.  I had a Commodore 64 back in the day and I would sit at it for hours punching out code in BASIC. Yes.  Nerdy.

Then years later Al Gore invented the internet.  :-|  Thank goodness for that!  As a curiosity I created a “Home Page” with the plans of posting things about my Chocolate Lab, Moondance.  On a side note, she was my Brown Eyed Girl and was named after the Van Morrison song.   Anyway, there were some limitations on what could be done so I wrote a custom script written in Perl to automate some tasks.  Not long after, I started getting messages from people asking me, How did you do that on your website?”

It didn’t take long before I realized an opportunity existed so along came MoonGear.com in 1997.

In the beginning, I (d.b.a. MoonGear.com) focused on custom software.  It then expanded into web design, web hosting and even domain name registration.

Eventually, I sold off my hosting clients and transferred client domain names to other registrars such as GoDaddy.   It simply became too much to compete with those large companies.

I shifted gears a bit then over the next many years focused solely on website development.  This after all, was what I loved the most.

5 software languages later it is what I do today.   And because of how GoDaddy and other similar companies so easily pushed me out of certain business models, I decided that I wanted to work exclusively for small or medium sized businesses.

My hope is that helping other small businesses be successful will not only bring me success but will help them stick it to the large corporations and remain a competitive contribution to our communities.
