About Pacific Northwest Web Works

Alex - Owner & Developer

Hi, I'm Alex

I have spent most of my adult life in the tech sector. I worked for years doing IT work including running my small computer repair shop. My life was focused on helping others with their technology problems and making technology easier for them.

And then I married Ashley. While I had creative talents with technology, Ashley has always been a crafter. Soon after we got married, we started taking her crafts to a local farmer’s market. It was a lot of fun for both of us.

But like many makers find out rather quickly, markets alone won’t grow a successful craft business. Soon I was learning as much as I could about email marketing, branding, and how to build an online store. I had built websites in the past, but e-commerce is much more than the run-of-the-mill website.

As we focused down the craft business into a candle and soap business, we started gaining sales online. I also found that I enjoyed the process of building e-commerce sites. As time went on, I moved away from repairing computers and into web design full time. And so Pacific Northwest Web Works was born.

Over time we have built websites for all kinds of businesses. But our passion has always been with small businesses. And since we learned so much growing the candle business, I love working with other handmade artisans.

Together Ashley and I design and create the websites. Ashley is not very techy, so I rely on her to help simplify the websites I build. This makes it easy for our clients to manage the basics of their online store. All without having to deal with all the D.I.Y. which causes so much stress for other non-tech business owners. Your time is more valuable than sitting behind a screen hoping what you are making works and looks professional.
