Sharon Murphy
Hi there! I’m Sharon Murphy, and I’m a web developer.

I started on this path after quitting my first teaching job in 1999. I had just effectively left a career I had worked towards all my life and was floundering a bit. Other than music and teaching, I had always loved computers and had even dabbled in building web sites for the various musical groups in which I was involved. On my way home from school, I stopped in Barnes & Noble and purchased my first O’Reilly PHP book. Since then, I’ve loved coding, designing, and fixing web sites.

I love technology and what it can do to simplify our lives and make it more interesting all at the same time. Seeing a creative design come to life and bringing it into the web world is my favorite mystery to solve.

My main love has been with PHP, and my CMS of choice has been WordPress since its inception in 2003. I find it flexible, secure, easy to design around, and so easy to customize. If you’re looking for a web site you can control without having to contact a web developer for every little change, this would be my recommendation. Let me help you get there!
