Creative Manipulations for the Web & Beyond
Welcome to my portfolio / business site. I am currently available to work with clients of all sizes.
Strap in … this is not your typical business nor your typical presenter.
A Bio w/ Some Old Pixs
Salutations! My name is V. Matthew King-Yarde, a Black freelance polymath web developer based in Brooklyn, NY. I provide services to individuals, small businesses, and mid-to-large-sized businesses alike.
Although I mostly specialize in Public Relations, Advertisement, and Personal/Company Branding for the service & entertainment industries, I enjoy working with clients from all backgrounds.
Back in the early days of the web, I developed websites for people, but now I’m known as a “Content Creator”. I can edit and direct videos, take event photography, create graphics, edit photos, and combine them into offline presentations (like print). I can make websites and basic web applications with WordPress, like this very site, but I’m just as comfortable creating static sites as I am with dynamic ones.
As a web consultant, I have knowledge of audience behavior and trends, allowing me to anticipate the next big thing. I attract clients with unique tastes, but I also work with those with a more traditional background.
And when I say “I have years of experience in this,” you can tell by the computer in the bottom-left photo that I mean it. I personally built that computer, and while it might not help you understand the web, the Netscape browser in there should. And if you’ve never heard of “Netscape” before reading this, that means I’ve been on the web before it was cool. I’m old in net years, but young in ambition.
Breaking down the elements that makes up what I can do.
Are you looking to spruce up your website? With over 15 years of experience in web development, I’m here to help. I’m well-versed in all types of Content Management Systems, but my preferred weapon of choice is WordPress because of its flexibility. Whether you need a complete website redesign or just some minor updates, I can help bring your vision to life.
In addition to web development, my first love was designing with Photoshop. Whether it’s a simple flyer or a complex full-page ad with a lot going on, I can create something that suits your needs. Just one favor I ask – please don’t say “nice Photoshop work!” Photoshop is not a verb.
Hosting an event and need a skilled photographer? Look no further! With an actual camera in hand, I have a keen eye for capturing one-of-a-kind moments and will do whatever it takes to get the perfect shot.
Yes, that includes laying down on the ground from time to time to get the perfect angle.
Do you have a bunch of videos and only need the best moments compiled? Or do you need some video footage fixed, regardless of the screen size? My experience allows me to edit videos for big screens as well as small ones. In fact, I’ve edited videos for Time Square, which is as big as it gets! So, whether you need a short highlight reel or a full-length feature, I’ve got you covered.
Put it all together and you have someone who can create engaging content! With my experience in web development, photography, and video editing, I can help you develop content that captures the attention of your audience. In fact, I won a Shorty Award for creating a hashtag that engages people, so I know a thing or two about what people like. Whether you’re in the service, entertainment, or any other industry, I can work with you to develop an angle that helps you attract customers on social media. Your audience can engage with your content and be directed to your website, or make a purchase directly on social media.

Now that you seen what I can do, how can I help you?
If you’re interested in my work and would like to get in touch with me, you can book a free consultation using the button located on the bottom right of your device’s screen. Simply select a time that works for you, and I’ll send out reminders before the appointment to ensure that we’re still on track. During the appointment, we can discuss your project in detail.
Alternatively, you can use the form below to send me an email. This will be the slower contact method, as it may take up to 48 hours (weekdays) for me to respond. (I will though)
You may be wondering why I haven’t provided a direct phone number. The reason is simple: I’m a busy professional, and I can’t entertain every single offer that comes my way. Additionally, I may be working on other projects, creating content for myself or others, or taking a well-deserved mental health day. I prefer to come to you with my A-game, which is why I limit communication to these two channels.
So, pick your poison and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
