I always find it a challenge to talk about myself, but will do my best to do so here in a way that is useful to people without trying to sound snotty. It will be in the third-person so that it’s largely easy to copy & paste for other bio opportunities that will arise, such as guest posts, conference speaking, board members or whatever else may come along.

Marshall StevensonMarshall Stevenson has been designing websites since 1994 — then hand coding them in HTML. He began to focus and develop sites and applications utilizing PHP, MySQL, jQuery and other dynamic technologies roughly around the year 2000.

Over the years Marshall has developed an interest in Search Engine Optimization, or SEO as it’s known to many. His designs largely focus on designing and developing for the user, however ensuring that “on-page” code work is done to enhance SEO efforts. In 2007 his passion for SEO was further ignited when he had the opportunity to work with an experienced SEO industry pro.

Marshall largely designed the second & third UI versions of the WestJet Vacations website single-handed. The redesign efforts saw the website ranking in the top 3 consistently for competitive search terms like vegas vacation, and hawaii vacation — to name just a few. Additionally he developed a number of in-house tools to ease in the daily deployment process of specific deals, promotions and content essentially hand crafting a custom content management system (CMS) from scratch.

To stay sharp in coding and design, Marshall has undertaken a few special projects of his own that he hopes to be launching in the upcoming months. Add to that his graphic design and marketing in Calgary and he stays out of trouble and on top of trends.

He is currently the co-host of a weekly Winnipeg Jets podcast that was spurred by the return of the NHL to Winnipeg and a side project from the best Winnipeg Jets fan site. The Jets Hockey Podcast is heard in over fifty countries around the globe, with plans to add a few more shows to his hosting lineup.

On a more personal note, Marshall Stevenson is a father to the world’s cutest daughter Ava, who consistently challenges him to find ways of locking her out of his iPhone or iPad. She is the focus and star of the Daddy Daughter Podcast, where Marshall & Ava chat about things important to a toddler.

If you’d like to contact Marshall Stevenson for development or design quotes, speaking engagements, guest post opportunities or just to say “hey, how you doin’?” please feel free to do so. Thanks for taking the time to read this and for visiting the online home of the next internet billionaire.
