My web design philosophy is that web sites should be easy to navigate, communicate clearly what the client wants to present and be beautiful without compromising functionality. I first like to meet with a client to find out exactly what they want, then I provide a detailed, itemized quote for my work. I can work at the pace of the client whether there is a tight deadline or the client needs to take their time deciding exactly how they want to proceed.

Most of the sites you see here were built from the ground up, creating my own templates and css. I refine and test my code in multiple browsers and versions and always code with SEO in mind. I can provide all graphics services as well from photography to image optimization, logo, button, and graphic design to basic Flash animation. I am currently working with the WordPress platform and can produce a customized look to basic templates with all the expandability and functionality that WordPress can provide..

Web Portfolio

I designed this site to showcase my metals and jewelry work and to advertise my classes. I created the header, layout, performed all image correction and optimization and wrote all the html and css.

This is the site for Jack Da Silva's metals retreat held each June outside of San Francisco. This was created quite a while a go so it still relies heavily on tables and image based javascript navigation but the overall design is solid and the site works beautifully. If MAKER comes out of hiatus, I will do a re-design.

Website of Dr. Georgeann Polansky who beads stunning wearable art in her spare time.
I created the background texture, header and button graphics plus all html and css. The javascript code for the zoom function in the gallery was written by Ben Reeves.

Website for a powder metal sintering and vacuum forming company in Tempe, AZ. I created the background graphic, headers, performed image optimization and wrote all html and css.

Website for writing coach Michelle Hubele. Simple and effective.
This site is still under construction.

Heard Museum Online

As the new website and e-commerce administrator for the Heard Museum Online Shop, I was tasked with implementing a major re-design of the shop website. I had to work within the confines of our content management hosting site to rewrite the template we were given (not a single commented line of css) to suit our specific design and functionality needs.

Heard Museum Online

This is the new website to support the Mesa Arts Center metals and jewelry classes, which I built on a WordPress platform. The site lists classes and registration information, metals news around the valley, supplies a resources page with metals suppliers, organizations and publications, and details information about the studios and instructors.
