TRAVIS PFLANZ

WordPress Web Developer & SEO Professional in Kansas City

ABOUT ME

Puppy Wrangler, Indie Film Enthusiast and WordPress & SEO Guy

I build and design websites throughout Kansas City, with search engine optimization in the forefront, of course. I provide affordable - not cheap (yes, there is a BIG difference) - websites for small and medium sized businesses. I am also a co-organizer of WordPress KC and a member of Kansas City Search Engine Marketing Association.

When not building websites, I enjoy classic American literature, volunteering at Wayside Waifs animal shelter and helping independent filmmakers get their films made.

I am an eternal Kansas City Royals and Chiefs optimist... Except when I'm being pessimistic.

Web Works of Kansas City

Kansas City web design & search engine optimization (SEO)

I formed Web Works of Kansas City in 2007. My first client as a business was a restaurant in Olathe. The restaurant is no longer in business, but it was at no fault of the amazing website!

2007 - TODAY
2004

Discovered WordPress

It's no longer that cute little blogging platform it started out as

I began working with WordPress shortly after it's release... Back then, it was much different - mostly a simple blogging platform. Now, it is much more powerful, capable of everything from eCommerce to social community websites. Today, more than 20% of all websites on the internet are powered by WordPress.

First Website

I built my first website for fun. Is that weird?

I first became interested in website design in 2000. Back then, fantasy football websites were not as advanced as they are today. Our league needed a website to keep the league history and a place for owners to make their selections in our fantasy pick 'em pool, so I built one!

SOME OF THE GOOD THINGS PEOPLE SAY ABOUT MY WORK

MOVIES I'M WATCHING

you should see it you should skip it

Movie reviews are boring. I just let you know if you should see a movie or not, with a few notes.

Finding Vivian Maier 2013
2015 Academy Awards
Boyhood 2014

Boyhood (2014)

Watched: February 22, 2015

A fantastically bold concept, worth a watch simply for that fact. Richard Linklater deserves all the accolades for this project.

All of that said, other than Eathan Hawke, the acting is not very good.

The Phone Call 2013

The Phone Call (2013)

Watched: February 19, 2015

I always enjoy watching all the Oscar nominated short films at Tivoli

Parvaneh 2012

Parvaneh (2012)

Watched: February 19, 2015

A coming of age story. Nicely shot and acted. Nominated for Best Short Film

Butter Lamp (La lampe au beurre de yak) 2013

Butter Lamp (La lampe au beurre de yak) (2013)

Watched: February 19, 2015

An odd little film… I’m not sure I understood it, but fun, anyway.

Boogaloo and Graham (2014)

Boogaloo and Graham (2014)

Watched: February 19, 2015

A very fun short film – Short Film Oscar nominee

Aya 2012

Aya (2012)

Watched: February 19, 2015

A crazy and impulsive ride, and Oscar nominated Short Film

Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1

Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1 (2013)

Watched: February 17, 2015

I love that Tivoli shows all the short subject Academy Award nominees.

I always recommend movie lovers watch them all!

White Earth 2014

White Earth (2014)

Watched: February 17, 2015

A nominee for the 2015 Short Doc Academy Award

The Reaper (La parka) 2013

The Reaper (La parka) (2013)

Watched: February 17, 2015

This film is so creepy the cinematography and sound in this, coupled with the topic puts it very close to a horror flick.

The Reaper isn’t going to win the Oscar for Best Short Doc, but I think it’s a film all horror buffs will enjoy.

The Curse 2013

Our Curse (Nasza klatwa) (2013)

Watched: February 17, 2015

Such a sad story, though I’m happy to have watched all the Oscar Short Documentary nominees.
