About Butch

Ewing Family

It is apropos, as a Ewing, that I was born and raised in the Dallas area. I went to Bible school at Christ For The Nations, where I received an Associate of Practical Theology Degree. For almost ten years, I served as a minister where I started a teen club/music venue. Then, I joined a rock band, started a screen printing company, web design company, and web hosting company. From there, everything culminated into my career in web design and development.

I married Amy while in Bible School. We have two adult children and two adult dogs.

I have built websites since 2004. I have also started, merged, and sold companies as well as worked in and with agencies. I currently work alone, building and managing my client's websites. When necessary, I contract out for deeper levels of SEO, copywriting, and design work, which helps to keep the overhead low and the processes flexible.

My philosophy is simple: start small and let the website grow with the business. I focus on making things logical and easy to navigate from page to page. I build websites with mobile devices and search engines in mind. I have a passion to build sites that help to convert leads to customers, and I tailor each website to help achieve my clients business goals.

I provide on-going support, maintenance, and technical consulting for my clients, striving to be a trusted advisor for all things internet related. I manage web hosting, domain registration, DNS, website encryption, security, email, and more.
