Side Projects

I love building interactive web applications either custom coding or utilizing a CMS like Vignette, Ektron, SharePoint, BroadVision, Blue Martini, ColdFusion, or SiteCore; integrating Flash, ASP (ASP.net), VB (VB.net), JSP, XML, Java, JavaScript, VBscript, and SQL, even MySQL and PHP. My expertise is such that I know what is involved in building a site from the ground up. From knowing how to build and maintain a server, database and website all the way to implementation and testing. I am a skilled document-er, having to develop user flow models, product maps, interaction concept sketches, wire frames, mockups, and testing prototypes. I have collaborated with the developers, design firms or design teams, user experience, product, and development teams to proactively gather and understand stakeholder and end-user needs in order to create the best user experience possible.

Mouse Hole Farms “Riding with Chi” October 2009
User Interface Designer, Information Architect & Developer
Promotional website for the “Riding with Chi” Book on the DotNetNuke platform:
Go Daddy Hosts the website and I created a custom page layout and gathered all of the requirements, content and imagery and worked with Andrea Steele to get the website up in time to promote her new book on horseback riding and combining the Chi teachings to working on Dressage Horse Training. It was a very fun and interesting project and I learned a lot about horses and saw lots of very complicated training methods that people used to teach these horses various “tricks” and “routines”.

Personal website built on the GoDaddy’s Photo Log platform:
Go Daddy Photo album website I use for a public photo website. I used to have a 700 gallon aquarium that is why the weird name, but I have the domain registered for an eternity so I thought I would use it for personal photos.  Mainly I keep all my photos on Facebook, but this is a good place to look too…
