wordpress + responsive design

Did you know that the overall percentage of mobile usage is expected to eclipse desktop usage this year? It's true. This makes having a flexible, responsive, website design an absolute imperative. Using a framework like Twitter Bootstrap allows developers to quickly and efficiently put together a fully responsive website and is my flavor of choice.

Wordpress paired with bootstrap? Now we're talking about a powerful combo. A full featured, open-source, CMS which allows users to easily manage content and customize their web presence, working in harmony with an open-sourced responsive framework, well that's just dandy.

Hello, my name is Brad Messenger and this is my little slice of the web. I am currently employed as a web developer by the Mountain Xpress in Asheville, NC. I build and maintain wesbites.

I do take on freelance work from time to time and offer an array of services. For examples of recent work, please browse through my portfolio. Also, feel free to contact me via email or using the form below. I'd love to hear from you!

When I'm not sitting in front of a computer you can find me out in the woods on top of some knobby tires, on my road bike headed up the Blue Ridge Parkway, hurling tennis balls for my boxer buddies or sipping on a local IPA down at the brewery.

Prior to working in the IT field, I "worked" in the cycling industry for 6 years. Racing, turning wrenches, building beautiful Pinarello and Pegoretti bikes and taking annual trips out to Las Vegas were all part of the routine. I graduated with a BA from UNC Charlotte and went back to school a short time later to earn a BS in IT with a focus in web multimedia and animation.
