Normally I hate when web designers use their own name for a website. But, I make an exception for such narcissism in the case of Patrick McNeil.

He’s a technical guy, who prefers analyzing the code and design heavy ends of web design, but right up their with some of the best bloggers.

Jeremy is the Lead Designer & Owner of Enable. Jeremy is a small business connoisseur who helps the little guys conquer big. When he’s not designing websites or writing blogs, you’ll find him spending time with his wife and family.
