About My Web Maestro
It’s a good thing to know who you’re working with!
The “Web Maestro” brand began officially back in 2001, when Nathan Lyle (owner) graduated from Northern Michigan University and began doing web design full-time. He had already been working with campus departments on various website projects, and had started meeting and working with local business owners as well.
Over the course of the next ten years, it was a safe bet that if you were in Marquette and looking at a website for a local business, you’d see the “U.P. Web Maestro” name on the bottom of that site.
After several name changes and other business transitions, Nathan now runs My Web Maestro mainly out of Marquette and Ann Arbor, working with clients in over 14 states and 58 cities.
While Nathan remains the primary engine behind My Web Maestro, the extended team currently consists of professional specialists, tied to a network of technical support, fueled by creativity and stubborn determination.
We tend to work most often with small businesses (mom and pop shops) but have worked on projects smaller and much larger. We’ve built everything from static brochure-style sites to ecommerce storefronts to time-saving web apps.
We love what we do. We’re geeks and proudly admit it. But what we really enjoy is seeing our ideas and work put to successful use by people like you. We take pride in being able to help. If you’re looking for a personable web tech service provider with a healthy helping of humor, you’re on the right website.
Nathan is a father of four, an amateur musician, and an aspiring photographer. He’s been writing music since high school and continues to enjoy the creative process of putting stories to song. Photography has become the perfect antidote for too much screen time – getting outdoors into the wild, turning creativity to capturing landscape and critters with his camera, to share with others.
Nathan’s first computer was an Apple II+ that had him learning to program in 4th grade. Right from day one, he enjoyed figuring out what computers could be used to do to make life more fun and easy.
In college, Nathan ended up working as a freelancer for many departments, creating websites and online courses. This included, at one point, working closely with the Department of Continuing Education to help teachers get their classes online, and teaching classes on HTML and web browsers.
Nathan is a veteran of the Browser Wars, and will gladly talk at length about the changes he has seen in Web technology if you accidentally ask him.
