“Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
We are a small group of developers with a passion for empowering people to reach their full potential both personally and professionally through beautiful design. We think that a web site is more than just a place for information – it’s a creative expression of who you are as an individual, and as a business. We take special care to get to know our clients, and make sure they are involved throughout the process. We produce the high quality custom work with an eye for breathtaking design. Your site represents you, and we want you to be proud to show it off.
We’re passionate about self-empowerment and social justice, which is why we partner with Kiva to provide entrepreneurs in developing countries with funding for their businesses. Red Oak has a strong commitment to community, and we also seek out work with local non-profits and community organizations we believe in.
Born and raised in San Francisco, I am very passionate about supporting small businesses in the Bay Area. Having spent over ten years in the I.T. industry, I have a long history in the technology field. I’m also an performer and artist, and I view every project I work on as an artistic expression.
In 2009, I moved to the Isha Institute of Inner Sciences in McMinnville, Tennessee and spent three years there practicing Yoga and meditation, while volunteering full-time as a web designer. In that time, I experienced life in a completely new and beautiful way, and this experience has shaped who I am, and my values as a business owner.
I created Red Oak Web Design as a way to offer web design and development services to people and businesses who care about social issues, and are passionate about raising human consciousness. I feel strongly that business doesn’t have to be a purely capitalistic pursuit , that it is first and foremost about people, and that responsible businesses can make the world better.
