Ross Cooper

CANYON COLLABORATOR - Web Developer

Ross is a certified front-end web developer with over 10 years of experience. Starting out as a self-taught developer in college, he built and maintained several sites for friends and family on the side. His largest project included a website for a highly regarded 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.

 Recently, Ross has been fully immersed in the WordPress ecosystem. Recognizing its popularity, which almost powers 30% of all websites, his goal is to create beautiful, fast, SEO-friendly websites while making content management easy for clients.
