About Me

Alkymst | Nathan Smith

Hi there! My name is

Nathan R Smith

I have worked in the web industry for over 14 years now. I’m currently a partner and CEO of Roots.

A little about me


I’m a 37-year-old Full-Stack Developer & UI/UX designer, currently located just outside of Denver, CO. I have been an artist since childhood, and building things online since 2001. I cut my teeth managing, and running a handful of fairly sucessful ecommerce websites.

I had found my passion for building businesses online, and gathered the skills to rank them. I saw an oppurtunity to build clean, manageable, SEO friendly websites. My second endeavor was born, The Web Alchemist.

Since then I have worked with quite a few StartUps, and corporate clients. I was the lead designer / front-end developer with Net-Results when it was 4 employees. I also ran the agency portion, which later became Blue Riot Labs. I was the acting Lead WordPress Dev for Hearst Digital News for 3 years before they created an in-house agency, which later they offered me a lead role.

“ I have worked with Nathan and his team Access Marketing Company clients. His expertise in web and software development never ceases to impress me, and we've served many satisfied clients through our alignment with his firm. I admire his integrity and commitment to "doing things the right way" for his customers and recommend Nathan with confidence to anyone seeking a quality firm for web and internal application development. ”
