My name is Brian Reich.  I’m a freelance web developer in Mifflinburg, Pennsylvania, and I own and run Reich Web Consulting.

I’m a problem-solver. That’s probably why I gravitated towards programming at such a young age, because programming is nothing if not problem solving (and inventing problems to solve, on occasion).

My problem-solving nature goes beyond code. I’m remodeling my house.  I fix just about everything that breaks on my own. Whether my friends need their computer repaired of help finishing drywall, they often call me first. This do-it-yourself mentality gives me tremendous respect for the folks in our community that makes things happen: the makers, the builders, the creators, and the small business owners.

Back in 2014 I accepted a job at a large ad agency and it exposed a new problem: small businesses lack good options when it comes to choosing who designs their business website and leads their web marketing endeavors.  In less than a year I resigned and took a gamble on myself:  I now run Reich Web Consulting, a one-man web design and web marketing company that aims to fill the small business niche in my local market of Union County, Pennsylvania.

Off-hours, I like being a “maker” myself. I’m a passionate woodworker.  I also love remodeling, gardening, and exploring different medium to express my creativity. If you enjoy that kind of thing you can check out my hobby-horse side-project, The Renaissance Caveman.
