Charlie Zegers


Charlie Zegers (that’s me, in the sweater) is a twenty-year veteran of the Internet industry.

  • I started at iVillage when English majors could still get jobs in “New Media”
  • In 1997, moved to a “Silicon Alley” startup that was soon swallowed by America Online.
  • I worked at AOL and Time Inc., for the best part of a decade, on products like AOL Local, AOL Help, AOL Games, AOL’s first mobile content store, and the web sites for Time Inc. magazines like Popular Science, Field & Stream, Parenting, and This Old House.
  • Started my own independent web development company – – in 2007, specializing in sites for small businesses, charities and writers/bloggers and product development consulting. Some of my clients have included the City of New York, the New York Historical Society,,, Next Issue Media, and the Daily Racing Form.
  • In 2017, I changed the name to Bronx River Digital.
  • I run marathons at a glacial pace and play guitar (but try to avoid the B chord). My wife and two kids are amazing and mostly put up with my nonsense. I am heavily involved in autism awareness campaigns, my kids’ schools, and the Boy Scouts of America.

My Philosophy

I could build you whatever web site you like. But I’d rather work with you to create a clear, logical, and sustainable strategy for your company or organization’s online presence… and then build a site to match.

My promise to my customers: I will never hit you with unexpected charges, I will never recommend a complicated solution when a simple one will meet your needs, and I will not leave you with a site you don’t know how to maintain.
