I’m Wes McElhinny, the owner and founder of Maverick Web Design based out of a small town outside of Colorado Springs, Colorado called Peyton. I started my career as a Political Operative working and running campaigns from local to national levels but then transitioned to a career in the IT world due to my love of technology. I worked as a System Administrator and Software Developer before finally landing in cybersecurity. Web design started as a hobby after taking an HTML/CSS course while studying for my second Bachelors Degree. This is where I fell in love with WordPress and web design.
I have always wanted to own my own business, which is how Maverick Web Design got its start. As my knowledge of WordPress increased, I started to realize how vulnerable personal websites can be, and how little effort gets put into cybersecurity postures. As a cybersecurity professional, I took this very personally and am now on a mission to ensure that small businesses and individuals are protected from those with malicious intent. I restructured Maverick Web Design to not only INCLUDE a cybersecurity focus, but to PRIORITIZE it. My background and understanding of cybersecurity will give your business the upper hand when the inevitable threat occurs.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my amazing wife, Jess, and our two dogs, Maverick and Aspen. I’m also a huge fan of breakfast burritos.
I look forwared to working with you,
