A little about me...

I own and operate Three Shadows Media, a web design business based in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado. I built my first website when I was around 13 years old and was immediately hooked! I studied for hours upon hours subjects such as HTML, CSS, and Perl, and PHP - techy stuff that you probably don't understand - it's alright, that's why I'm here! I started Three Shadows Media in the summer of 2020 as a freelance web design business after working for over 10 years as an employee and freelancer for other web design agencies. I quickly added search engine optimization (SEO) as well as website mainteance and care plans to the services I offer.

Outside of being the owner of Three Shadows Media, I am, above all, a man of God and a family man who enjoys spending time with my wife, five daughters and two dogs. My wife and I are both Colorado Springs-area natives. When I'm not hacking away on a keyboard, I love to camp, ride ATVs, and traveling.

If you want to talk about web design, how to properly care and maintain a website, SEO, or just how I may be able to help you out with your project overall, feel free to contact me.

What is the story behind the name?

I get asked this question from time to time so I thought I would share the story here...

When I was a kid my family used to go to mountain man re-enactments, a historical rendezvous mostly during the mid 1800s time frame. People would dress in period clothes and participate in various activities from that era. It was an absolute blast and one of my fondest memories as a child is going to those for so many years. For a lot of those years, a close friend of my dad's came with us. At one event, while my dad was dressed in his leather pants and shirt he had made for himself, his friend was joking around with him and said "Kevin, you are so fat that you are casting three shadows on the ground." The name just stuck and my dad was known as Three Shadows from then on in the circle of people we attended those events with.

My dad passed away in December of 2016. We did an incredible amount together and shared many interests, including an interest in historical places, events, and things. I am blessed to be one of only two people in the entire world to be able to call him "Dad." He truly was the best dad in the world and I am so thankful for the years I got to spend with him.

So, to celebrate the joy I had as a kid going to those mountain man rendezvous re-enactments and, more so, to honor my dad and how much he meant to me and my life, I decided to name my business after him. "Kevin Media" just doesn't sound as cool though, so I went with "Three Shadows Media" instead.

Love you forever Dad!
