Coder, Designer, Graphics
In 1997, I was in the Air Force and stuck in Saudi Arabia for a few months. On some of those slower nights in the desert, I found some online HTML tutorials, read through them and starting coding in Notepad. It wasn’t until years later that I actually published anything online, but I had great practice on my local PC. Sometimes I’d build entire sites, store it on a floppy and carry it around with me in case I needed some of the information.
I taught myself web design in 1997 and started building my first web site in 2001. From there, I branched off and starting working several other client’s websites. I enjoy the work and enjoy helping people, from small personal websites to professional business needs.
My wife and children also share in the growth of our business. In particular, my oldest son loves web design but specializes in digital graphic art, while my wife is an artist and digital photographer.
Today, I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology from the University of Phoenix. I recently quit my job of 11 years with AT&T to open Green Dragon PC, LLC. Although I grew a hefty & loyal customer-base for years prior, I opened up our “brick & mortar” storefront in Sherwood, AR in 2010, moved to N. Little Rock on Main Street in 2012, and have never been happier about my career path. With this kind of passion for computers and web design, you’ll see a difference!
Back in 2007, I was the owner of an IT company in Fayetteville, AR called Fusion Data. During this time we went through several web developers, quickly realizing how difficult it was to find a reliable coder/designer. We had customers waiting, so in an attempt to keep up, I got a few books on HTML, CSS, and PHP. In no time at all I was able to do updates to customer sites, and could even create some basic web pages. Over the years I have kept adding to my knowledge as demand for websites has increased, and this has allowed me to offer a broader range of services to my clients. During the past year I met Troy, which created a partnership that has allowed me to learn even more, but ultimately it has allowed us to offer a more complete website development and support package to our customers. One thing that I have realized is that I enjoy doing websites, whether it is a personal site for an individual or a larger more complex site for a business, and that is why I am excited to be a part of Green Dragon Labs.

We Build with WordPress
We build each website with the most popular platform on earth – WordPress. This provides you with a stable and highly robust foundation to highlight your business without locking you into a proprietary and costly system. WordPress is an open source software solution with literally millions of deployments worldwide and used by some of the most notable names in business, including ESPN, CNN, New York Times, Forbes, GM, UPS and more. See notable WordPress users.
Your custom website will allow you or your staff to manage your site’s content easily. Add or modify posts, images, documents, video and more by simply logging into your system and making your modifications on the fly. Assign various levels of access to each user as needed to allow certain permission levels. This feature allows authors to add their content without having access to other’s.
Your website will be delivered to you fully optimized for search engines at no additional cost. Built-in SEO tools will give you the ability to maintain this high level of optimization every time you add additional content. All of this is called “on-page” optimization and is the starting place used by all SEO firms before executing a full-scale marketing campaign. Having this critical component already in place will save you hundreds and even thousands of dollars on a managed Internet marketing and promotion project.

We guarantee that you will be completely satisfied with your new website. But if you’re not, we will do whatever it takes to fix the problem in accordance with the work agreement.

Why is SEO or search engine optimization important?
Search engine optimization used to imply that your website was configured in such a way as to gain the most visibility possible from the various search engines used to present your business to the public. While the premise still holds true, the manner in which this is achieved has changed dramatically!
Websites have two audiences. The first is the human visitor, and the other is the search engine robot or spider. Spiders and robots are programs that crawl the Internet looking for good, unique and relevant information. If your site’s content is of poor-quality, offers little useful information, or is stuffed with keywords to try to fool the search engines into ranking the page, your entire site – and ultimately, your business will suffer as a result. A good rule of thumb is to write content for your visitors and NOT for the search engines. 2014 has ushered in a whole new generation of search that uses content and verifiable social signals to “rank people” (content authors) and their associated web pages.
What if my site is already online but in need of repair?
Some under-performing sites can indeed be optimized – but some are much better served by being sent to the proverbial scrap heap where they belong!
Let’s be honest. A vast majority of websites online today are so poorly designed that attempting to “fix” them would be an exercise in futility. Worse yet, “fixing” some could cost more in time and resources than simply replacing it with a new one. But the answer is ‘yes,’ a site can be optimized from virtually any phase. But again, it may be worth considering comparing the cost of optimizing a broken site with replacing it with an entirely new SEO site.
What part does the actual content play?
Content is King when it comes to building and promoting a quality website. But these days, so is the author!
The value of quality content and the online reach and reputation of the author cannot be overstated. It is the two most important components of every successful website. In the past, the old saying that “content is king” was entirely true. Nowadays, however, the truth is that “unique content written and ascribed to an established author is king.” This is what is being presented to the search engines. The “New SEO” is merely “the knowledge” of what the semantic web and associated ‘Knowledge Graph’ is and how it works together to deliver answers to search queries. Good, clear, and concise website copy written by an author who continuously extends his/her reach and authorship, therefore, is an investment well worth the cost.
Are there any guarantees that my website will be #1?
The short answer is “no.” And if anyone claims otherwise, run for the hills!
Know at the outset that no one controls Google except Google. However, one we thing is very clear and should serve as a warning, and that is that NO ONE can guarantee a specific position. (See what Google has to say about SEOs who guarantee placement). Unlike traditional media where you speak with an advertising representative and negotiate a page placement in a magazine, newspaper, or television schedule, no one controls the search engines in this capacity. A good SEO firm knows what the search engines are looking for and then helps the client understand and deliver precisely that in 100% accordance with defined standards and parameters.
