I’m Eric Hicks, a Tampa-area Web Developer and co-owner of Ataraxia Web, a premier WordPress web hosting company. I’ve had the privilege of working with amazing graphic artists and programmers in the area and I’ve built some really awesome websites with them. I hope you take the time to look through my Web Design Portfolio.
In March, 2012, I voluntarily left a 15 year career as a programmer with Humana, Inc. to pursue my dream of owning my own business as a Web Developer and Internet Entrepreneur.
My focus is building great WordPress websites that business owners are proud to call their own.
A highlight to my career as a programmer was working for SavvyPhone, Inc. as a lead developer on the SavvyCard product.
I’ve been developing websites part-time since 1998, programming in Java and PHP since 2000, and mastering SEO and Internet Marketing since 2005.
I have a wife, a son, and a dog. I’m a self-taught guitar, bass and drum musician. I love baseball and the Tampa Bay Rays. I recently started in a Crossfit program, and I volunteer as an Auxiliary Board Member for the Greater Holiday Little League. When I’m not working I like to spend time with my family and practicing baseball and other sports with my son.
