Man Up and Open Up

• Eric Barthold came to me through a mutual friend to set up a new website for his speaking series Man Up and Open Up. Eric visits high schools and colleges throughout New England to speak with students about gender stereotypes.
• While Eric already had a website running through a free service, we purchased a domain name and used his content in a customized WordPress shell from Graph Paper Press. It's dynamic, changing to fit the site of the screen the reader is using (computer, tablet or phone). It also has the option to add a blog down the road.

"Geoff Hansen created a web site for me that is fresh, functional and fabulous! I continue to get multiple compliments (and opportunities) because of my site. Geoff's efficient turnaround time and reasonable rates are competitive in a market where everyone is seeking more page views."
— Jennifer Shu, Atlanta-based pediatrician, author, CNN HEALTH columnist and REACH MD host
