Ethan is reliable, fast, efficient, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, beyond competent.... I was skeptical at first, but he has proven to be well worth the monthly fee. I highly recommend Ethan and Sterner Stuff for any small business website needs.

I hired Sterner Stuff to redo my website from scratch (it was a dozen years old). I found Ethan to be very professional. He took me through the process step by step explaining everything in terms I understood (not being the most techie guy in the room). The finished product was exactly what I wanted. Completed on schedule with the feel and function I was looking for. I feel comfortable recommending Ethan at Sterner Stuff to all my friends and business associates.
