Our Founder

Growing up in Missouri in the country, I began my career at an early age working in family businesses. School was not available to me, so I taught myself to read and write, math, and other skills. When I gained access to the internet, I began to teach myself other skills. At the age of 10, I took my first business online as well as my families’ business. By the time I was twelve, I had started two successful companies while managing my parents company.

By the age of sixteen, the companies I started had grown to four. I realized though that I enjoyed helping others make it in business, and enjoyed the consulting side as well as web development. In 1996, I started Deatherage Web Development and began serving small and medium businesses around the world.

I have experience in many of the top web applications and technologies, including Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Photoshop, Magento, WordPress, PHP, MYSQL, and many others. I am committed to serving you and helping you become successful online.

Times have changed since the early days of e-commerce. But there is still opportunity out there for those who want to start a small business. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to make your business a success.
