Aloha, we’re Beth and Jim Hood. We run Websites with Aloha from our office on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. Our Hawaii website design services are part of our technology consulting company Mobile Computer Doctor, Inc. Below is a little more info about each of us:
Beth – The Website Designer
Beginning life with a inclination toward being a healthcare practitioner (and actually becoming a licensed acupuncturist), Beth never actually saw herself being the lover of technology that she is today. Her inspiration in designing websites grew out of a personal project that the couple began years ago called Test Drive Your Future, which provides resources and tips to help young adults choose a career path.
This project originally involved the very first website Beth created, but it has evolved into an ongoing passion to help individuals, small businesses, and nonprofits build websites that they can have a fantastic relationship with. Our Hawaii website design services began in 2008.
Beth is intimately involved in all steps of the design process from the initial conversation, creation of a project estimate, and the actual design work, followed by a face-to-face or phone tutorial on how to use the site. She spends nearly all of her time in front of her beautiful new 27 inch iMac, designing sites, researching new web tools, and creating resources to help deepen your relationship with your site.
When she is “unplugged” from her iMac, she might be found stand up paddle boarding, swimming, or taking in the sunset.
Jim – The Computer Doctor
Jim has run a computer repair business on the Big Island of Hawaii since 2004. Although much of his time is still spent on the road helping people face to face in their homes or businesses, recently, more and more of his work is able to be done remotely using the latest technology. This means that he can often help you with your computer needs no matter whether you are in Hawaii, on the far coast of Maine, or somewhere in between.
He is an integral part of the website process in that he has a special knack for “seeing the big picture” and analyzing whether a site appears user-friendly or is unclear in some way. He has spent several years studying internet marketing and copywriting techniques, and often assists in writing or editing compelling website content.
When he’s not tearing some computer apart and putting it back together, Jim plays bass guitar in a small band called the Fibonacci Sequence.
Charlie – The Mouse Whisperer
Though generally asleep in his executive chair next to Beth, occasionally Charlie takes an active role as our CFO- Chief Feline Officer.
He is a strong advocate for our corporate napping policy, and assists Jim in all mouse-related computer repairs. If you come to our office for an in-person tutorial, he may make himself scarce as he’s a bit of an introvert, but he requests that you please do not sit in his chair.
If you are looking for immediate help, please contact us directly. Jim can be reached at 808-640-6662 or by email at email@example.com. He fields primarily computer-related questions.
