Doug designed his first website in 1996 and was ‘blogging’ in 1999 before the word had made it into the dictionary. He started his working life in education and was the adviser for a state champion newspaper staff in Dolores, Colorado. After teaching, he found his way into AutoCAD and designed custom timber frame homes for six years. He founded DML Web Services in 2010 and expanded into web hosting and domain registration with Cortez Web Hosting in 2013. In 2016, both entities combined to make Cortez Web Services. His passion for design work is supporting other businesses as they strive for success.
