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?

The Ellanyze Mission

I have met countless big-hearted entrepreneurs who so clearly 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.

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 to the right people - the people who will love working with them.

What's in a word?

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