Hello - my name is Todd Richards. I'm a solo web designer and developer located in Omaha, NE. The funny thing is, several of the sites I have done are not even from Nebraska!
My specialty is working with small-to-medium businesses to fulfill their online needs. I specialize in building responsive (RWD) websites using ExpressionEngine, Craft, and the awesome Zurb Foundation framework for the front-end. I have also worked with audio/video for the web, and have ASP (Classic) experience in the event you need help with an old website.
My clients come to me because they know I will be working with them personally. They also know that I'm going to be honest and straightforward with them when they ask a question or make a request. I am fluent in both "Geek" and "English", so I'll do a great job of making sure you understand things - or at least the things you want to understand. Your success is my success, so I treat every site as though it's my own. So, in a way I guess I don't think of you as a client, but as a friend.
One of the great things about the Internet is that you don't have to be in Omaha, NE to work with me. With email, mobile phones, Skype, remote desktop sharing, etc., it's pretty easy to communicate these days. Likewise, if i need assistance on a project, I can call on any of my skilled colleagues to help out, regardless of where they live. So everyone wins!
While my main focus in Omaha is responsive (RWD) web design and web development, I have also been supporting Windows PCs and servers for the last 15+ years. And since I have completely converted to an "all-Apple" office, I guess you can add Macs to the list too. So if you're looking for help for your home or office, and don't know who to call, give me a shout!
I started Promising Sites back in 1999 after I discovered my love for computers, the Internet, and creating websites. I came up with the name "Promising Sites" because I want to build a successful website for you. While the technology has changed over and over (and over) since then, one thing hasn't - my passion for it.
I pursued my degree in Computer Science from UNO, and while I enjoyed programming, I quickly learned that I wanted to do more than just writing code. After exploring some options, I decided that a focus on the Internet was what I wanted, which led me to my Bachelor of Arts Degree from Bellevue University. I guess the gratification of being able to put something online and have it available to the entire world in an instant was pretty awesome. Even to this day, I get up each morning and still think that it's pretty cool.
In my spare time, I love working out (I am also a BeachBody coach), doing various remodeling projects around the house, as well as trying my hand at photography.
Our two Boxers are our pride and joy. Sammy (right) is the head of Customer Service as he loves being around people, and will probably greet you with a wet kiss. Although Gracie (left) was quickly promoted to Office Manager due to her sassy personality.
Yes, you could say I have it made.
