Captains Wharf

Ahoy! I’m David Zupec, web designer and developer at the helm of Sailors & Mermaids

I create things so others can succeed. Forward thinking, strategic and innovative; ​I thrive on identifying unique opportunities and approaches when building websites. As a progressive initiator with the ability to take ideas and execute, I bring a youthful and relevant perspective. I have a dedication and perseverance to consistently give it my all to help brands thrive, grow and make a global impact. I do my best work for people who are trying to execute something exceptional and who values the services I offer.

Sailors & Mermaids is based out of Michigan, but work with clients throughout the world via Skype and email. Climb aboard with Sailors & Mermaids and discover new horizons.

P.S. After months of delays my new site design was finally launched this August! It's still a work in progress and will be fully responsive this Fall, I promise!
