I am a Freelancer operating outside of Vancouver BC in Chilliwack. I have extensive experience with WordPress, WordPressMU, bbPress, and BuddyPress. NO TEMPLATES yeah that's right I only do custom design work that fits your clients and your needs. No templates ever.
I also work with Ruby on Rails as a designer and frontend coder. I contract with some of the top people in the Ruby world for all of the backend programming. So if you'd like to have people that work for Engine Yard or contribute to Datamapper work on your rails project give me a shout.
The redesign of Fraser Valley Whitewater focussed on presenting readers with more content. We were able to double the pageviews with this redesign.
