Talented Austin Web Developer – Interview with Erin LaVaux Quarles



Hello everyone, Allison is here. As you know, MotoCMS cooperates with professionals all around the world, helping to create astonishing websites for different companies. Today, we have a chance to speak to a talented Austin web developer, Erin LaVaux Quarles, who has been working in this sphere since 1995.

Versatile Specialist – Some Words About Erin


It won’t be an exaggeration to say that such personalities as Erin LaVaux Quarles are quite rare. Besides being a highly experienced Austin web developer, Erin has got numerous other talents. She is involved not only in web and graphic design but also in software development and game creations. Some world-famous examples of her success include a contribution to the game The Sims and two Developer Tester positions for Microsoft. Additionally, Erin has extensive experience in singing, video creation, and book writing. She was also an assistant DJ and an anchor of radio programs. So, this prominent personality has agreed to answer our questions about her experience of working with MotoCMS. Ready to read what Erin says about our cooperation?


Our Friendly Talk with Erin


Allison: Hi Erin, tell me a bit about yourself and your business. Who is your target audience, what do you offer to your customers?

Erin: I’m the CEO and Lead Developer of TNW Creations based out of Austin, Texas. I’ve been in web development since 1995. My target audience is pretty broad, but I would say my favorite industry to work with would probably be construction and the trades.


Allison: Really? That’s surprising! Why do you enjoy constructing?

Erin: I grew up on farms and ranches and we were always building something, not just barns but houses and cabinets. Construction is in my blood. So talking with a contractor about his / her preferred roofing materials or R-value insulation is like home to me. I also have about 19 medical practices as regular clients, a lot of homeowner associations and many small to large businesses.


Allison: What was your experience level in building websites prior to meeting with the MotoCMS admin panel? Have you used any other systems before?


Erin: I am an established developer utilizing many coding programming languages & visual design platforms. HTML, CSS, PHP, Javascript, Adobe and JSON. I work with almost any system, but my current favorite is MotoCMS.


Allison: How did you come up with an idea of creating a website with MotoCMS? What benefits did cut a decisive figure?


Erin: Skills have to be kept sharp and up to date when it comes to technology. So I am always trying new methods and jumping on new learning wagons. I was no stranger to MotoCMS but was not using it as my preferred system until late 2019.


Allison: What features in the admin panel would you consider the most useful for the editing of your website?


Erin: It would be incredible if MotoCMS would add additional admin users for just the blog. I have HOA clients with board members who each need to have access to their blogs to post news or events. Right now, I maintain their sites and post their blog content. So we have a workaround, but I’m hoping additional blog admins will be added down the road along with blog user profiles for each admin. Something separate that would allow a blog admin to post but not to have website editing capabilities.


Allison: What would you like to get with MotoCMS in the future (features, widgets, plugins, improvements)?


Erin: As a designer and developer, being able to create pre-designed blocks would be incredible!  If I could set a block up the way I liked it and then saved the block, I could take over the tri-state area. Kidding. But seriously, that would be awesome.


Real-Life Examples of Websites – Austin Web Developer’s Portfolio


Actually, the discussion about website creation with Erin could last forever. You can take a glance at Erin’s results by visiting her profile where you will see some of her most recent work.

Still, the visual MotoCMS builder will let you understand the peculiarities of working with your site. The main principles of MotoCMS are the drag-and-drop functionality and ‘what you see is what you get’. It means that you will be able to edit your website even if you don’t have any coding skills.
