Meet Justin–your WordPress Watchdog

Justin’s passion for web development can be traced back to the dotcom era, when was hired as an HTML developer in 2000. After a short stint as a preschool teacher, he rocketed from low-level entry tech jobs to Director of IT in two separate companies: Wells Fargo Securities (now Wells Fargo) and AirTreks.

Realizing business owners are too often given poor advice or direction in regard to their website, he decided to launch his own agency that provides tailored, expert-level support.

“I cringe every time a potential client tells me the story of how their current website’s software can’t be updated or they can’t update the content themself. Other times, they tell me they constantly have issues getting clear answers from their hosting company or… You get the point.

My goal is to change all that.

I provide owners, whose website is the core of their business, with sound and honest advice. I want them to have a reliable foundation for running and maintaining that core in order to keep them focused on growth.

I currently live in Oakland, California and, when not working, I spend 98% of my free time with my family, supporting my talented wife and helping my two amazing daughters become driving forces of the next generation.”

Justin is a dream to work with. He’s speedy, creative, and best of all a great communicator. With my website in Justin’s capable hands, I can focus on making my podcast and rest assured knowing that all site issues will be taken care of.

Watchdog services, and specifically Justin Korn, are a valuable resource. The metrics give me a quick snapshot of use, which I can link to our social media communications. Unlike other services, with Watchdog we have never experienced any downtime or issues. Wonderful service! Wonderful people!
