Head Honcho

Gabe started Gecko Designs in 1996.  As owner, he oversees every project we undertake and works hard to make sure our clients have a fantastic experience.  Gabe makes himself available 7 days a week and insists that good communication is an essential part of the successful projects Gecko Designs prides itself in.


Obviously very well-informed in SEO.  I think we profited greatly from his class.  After we get more experience ourselves I think a second class would be super.

Gabe at Gecko helped me not only with my business site, but also with my business in general, helping me imagine and re-imagine the user-experience. He sat with me for an hour, two different times, as I talked through what I wanted my site to be capable of, and then pointed me in a direction of how to make it happen. I am not entirely tech-savvy, and he gave me the tools I needed to take the next steps...and I always know I can call on Gecko if I get stuck or need a second look at what I've created. I highly recommend Gecko!
