David Lewis built my site from scratch around my personal needs, and I couldn?t be happier. He worked collaboratively with a graphic designer I hired and attended to details well. Best of all, he keeps it updated with accurate information. It has been great to have reliable service from the very beginning that I can still count on today.

When I first went looking for someone to set up and manage a web site for me, a friend of mine, who is also an author-educator-consultant, recommended David C. Lewis and The David has not only been professional and timely in responding to my requests, he's a nice person with whom to work. Professional, intelligent, and considerate--wonderful qualities to find in someone who is there to help make your web site work for you!
I have had the pleasure of working with Dave on the St Charles Gymnastics Academy Booster website. No only did he make changes in a timely fashion, he also took the time to educate me on the basics of web design. I'm not very 'literate' with regards to technical computer/programming lingo, but that didn't stop Dave from taking the time to explain things in ways that I could understand. He is a great resource that I have come to rely on for computer issues beyond the confines of the website project.
