The Ellanyze Mission

I have met so many entrepreneurs who have tremendous heart, and who care deeply about the people they serve. However, I also find that for too many of them, their websites don't truly reflect their passion, their story, and what makes them profoundly unique from everyone else in their area of expertise.

My mission with Ellanyze is to craft websites for business owners that are in alignment with them and that tell their story in a way that speaks straight to the hearts of the right audience - the people who will love working with them.

All That Jazz...

Did you know I'm also a jazz musician? It's true. I spent a decade in NYC making a living playing clarinet and saxophone. My web design business was born when I began creating artistic websites for fellow musicians in the NYC area.

Now happily back in my hometown of Ann Arbor, MI, I spend my days crafting websites ... and some evenings playing music. How great is that?

What's in a word?

Ellanyze is a combination of the words Ella (meaning “she”), and Synchronize. Ellanyze represents both the feminine energy that I bring to my work and designs, as well as the synchronization that happens in my work: I see each of my clients for who they truly are, and I create a website design that’s a harmonious reflection of that.
