My Story

A passion for computers and the Internet

Meet David Ellison

David Ellison found his passion for computers and website design in Knoxville, TN back in 1995. While attending the University of Tennessee he started writing his first lines of code for websites on TextEdit using the Apple Macintosh Performa 638 CD. David spent much of his time learning online and from reading books on how to design websites and mange web servers.
"My passion for computers and the Internet started during my junior year attending the University of Tennessee. I'm fortunate to have made my dreams a reality and have worked 17+ years in the industry from home and have enjoyed every minute of it."
The dream was to work for a start-up in Silicon Valley writing code and designing websites. In 1998, David made the decision to move to San Jose, CA to follow his dreams. Unfortunately, he arrived during the Dot Com bust and recession. That didn't hold him back, 5 years later he moved back to Knoxville with a wealth of knowledge and started selling websites to small businesses. Online Media Designs was create in 2003 as a home-based business. Today, David brings over 17+ years of website design,  development and hosting experience to your next project.
