About Our Logo

The octopus is a highly intelligent creature, with a section of its brain dedicated to learning, and brilliant problem-solving abilities have been documented time and time again.

In captivity, octopuses have been known to identify individual human keepers, raid neighboring tanks for food, turn off lights by spouting jets of water at light switches, plug drains, and make daring escapes. Case in point, the infamous Inky the Octopus slipped through a gap in his tank and slid down a 164-foot-long drainpipe into Hawke’s Bay.

The octopus, described as “inquisitive and observant,” by science writer Peter Godfrey-Smith, and has intelligence is distributed throughout its body. There are almost twice as many nerve cells in its eight muscular arms as in its brain.

Our logo represents intelligence, problem-solving, curiosity, learning, teamwork, and autonomy.

About The Founder

Unsure of what I wanted to do with my life, I bought an old sailboat. I fixed it up and sailed from Muskegon, MI in the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean.

My girlfriend LeeAnn (now my wife), and I lived aboard for two years and our adventures took us from the Ragged Islands north of Cuba, to the Azores off the coast of Europe.

While traveling on the boat, I took a job as a virtual assistant, and learned that I had a gift for helping others with technology.

I started my own virtual assistant company, which grew to twenty-eight employees and served over 1,000 organizations around the world, including Northrop Grumman, MIT, Emory University, and many others.

After nearly a decade in virtual assistance, I sold my company and started WP Harbor to help businesses and organizations with Website Maintenance and Hosting.

Based on customer requests, we expanded our scope of service over the years, which today includes Web Design & Development, Domain Management, Email, and Search Engine Optimization.

I’m incredibly grateful for what WP Harbor is today. I work with a team of exceptionally talented people who share my passion for helping businesses and organizations. We serve a great group of clients who are located all across the country. I also purchased a much nicer boat. 🙂

 

Many special thanks to my parents, my wife LeeAnn, Brian Gladu, John Bridgewater, JR Egan, Lou Jeannot, Aaron Mazade, Trey Kane, Quentin Moss, Joe Graczyk, and many others for all their help and guidance along the way!
