Who is this guy?
Hi! My name is Barry Beach. Way back in the year 2000, I decided that I wanted to be a web designer. A couple years after that, I decided that I really needed to add developer to the title. So I became both!

I took some web design/development courses to get myself started, and off I went. In the years since, I've' gained a few clients, lost a few clients, raised a family, and pretty much enjoyed my life. I have a beautiful wife and four beautiful daughters. And I have one grandson (so far.) I live right smack in the middle of the Midwest, in Jefferson City Missouri.

Besides the few design/development courses I've taken, and the various programming and web design jobs I've held for other people's companies, I have taught myself everything I know about this business. And, as you'll hear any other designer/developer say, I am still learning. The web is constantly changing, and you gotta keep up!

I have built websites for many local businesses and organizations. Some have moved on, but some are still with me, such as The Little Theatre of Jefferson City, Jordan Emma Beach Photography, Margaret Grace Makeup Designs, and The National Autumn Leaf Club.

But what about the name, you say? Why 'Backstage Web Design?' Well I built my very first website for a local community theatre group. At the time I was, and still am, a member of that group. I am an actor. I also direct and write for theatre, as there is an abundance of it in my home town. I love the theatre. And if you've ever worked in the theatre, you would know that the people backstage, although you may not see them, are essential in making the production work. They build and move the sets, they manage the stage; they provide the means for the actors to tell the story.

So, you say, what does this have to do with web design? I'll tell you. Your website is the story - the play. All of the information, images and applications on your website are the actors. You, the client, are the Producer. And Backstage Web Design is everything else that makes the story - your website - come to life. The parallels are right there. So there you are. That's why 'backstage'.

So feel free to contact me about a new website, or a redesign, or even a new logo or some cool graphics. I'll make sure your story is told how you want.
