About Tarheel Media

We are a brand of MLW & Associates, LLC. MLW & Associates is a Limited Liability Company of North Carolina. We have over 20 years experience in Web Development, Web Design, Digital Marketing, and Website & Server Hosting. Through many trials and tests, we have always come out stronger and more reselient thanks to our loyal customers.


Tarheel Media started as Goldsboro Web Development, a DBA of Michael Wells. After about a year of word of mouth, Michael created a LLC, MLW & Associates to take ownership of the new brand.

After many trials, Michael and other managers of MLW & Associates, LLC decided to change the name of Goldsboro Web Development to something more memorable and easier to type, Tarheel Media. Tarheel Media is now a registered DBA in Wayne County, North Carolina.

We currently serve customers from the EU, to Canada, to right here at home in the United States and the vast majority of those customers are what drives us and our creativity. We wouldn’t be here today without them or Our Lord.

Michael and his wife are the majority owners of MLW & Associates, LLC and both are Veteran of the United States Army and served in the Signal Corps. While Michael specialized in network operations and deployment, Kimberly specialized in computer maintenance and since has taken up accounting and runs the financial side of the company.


Our ethics are based in the Holy Bible. For years Colossians 3:23 has been sitting in the footer of Goldsboro Web Development. From the Holy Bible it says,

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

We live by this and believe that it is a mandate to every Christian running or working in a company for other people. We are to treat the work as if God, Himself asked us to do it.

They were incredibly responsive and really listened to my needs. They also delivered the finished product in an extremely timely manner. Overall I am extremely satisfied with my site and service

Jarek Verihand, Molton Flooring

They know websites and actually take the time to sit down and explain things that aren’t over my head. Anytime someone asks who created my site, I write down their phone number and tell them they have to call them immediately.

Wanda Herring, Eastern Office Furniture

They have handled my website needs competently and professionally. They have exceeded my expectations. In the time in which Tarheel Media has worked with me, my company has more than doubled in sales.

Tim Teachey, TTE Custom Homes

When I sold my company, I told the new owner that a web designer could make or break the company.  I stand by those words because Cuddle Corn was a successful company.

Susan Gower, Cuddle Corn (former owner)

They created an amazing & visually stunning website for my company. They set you up for future website success as well with a easy to use interface that let’s you make edits on your own!

Brooks B., B S & G

I recommend Michael and his crew of website specialist to everyone who is looking to take their business up to the next level. Goldsboro Web Development professionals helped my business to be visible to potential customers on Googles fist page in my targeted area and i can not be happier with the results. Thanks again!
