S2UDIO is a Queens, NY based freelance project that i started over 10 years ago, focusing on web development/design and graphic design. i’ve been busy coding and designing as a hobby since 1997, and in 2008, i was inspired to finally try to take it on as a career. i quickly succeeded and gained an immense amount of undiscovered skills.
i choose to build all websites on the WordPress platform, so that my clients have the ability to login and make changes to their website content at their leisure. the possibilities of site customization for people is limitless, which i find very important, and i enjoy making it as easy as possible for my clients to maintain their content. it’s a wonderful convenience for anyone.
lastly: i’d like to note that i am strictly a hand-coder. 🙂
