Co-Op Media, LLC

My name is Paul Wenzel. I build and maintain successful sites, mobile apps, and content management tools.

My specialties cover the entire web development process, including front-end HTML5 and Javascript, real-time app development with Node JS and Firebase, backend development with PHP, Wordpress, Laravel, and Rails. I love building static websites with NPM and Jekyll.

I take pride in ensuring your products are performant, stable, and always online.

I live and work in Minneapolis, Minnesota.


Phone: (612) 293-9008

General Project Rate: $5000-10,000 / $100 Hourly
Initial project consultations are free. Just call me for lunch.
No headhunter or recruitment calls, please.

How I Work

Projects begin with a signed statement of work that includes a clear minimum and maximum estimate. All projects are eligible for ongoing support should you require it. Design assets and milestones should be made available very early on in the project. All projects are maintained via Git source control and include automated tests.

I work with a variety of hosting platforms, but recommend Pantheon, Webfaction, Firebase, and Netlify.

Please let me know if you are looking to connect with a designer or photographer.
