Glass Elephant Pro

Ground-up build, brand development

Worked directly with Glass Elephant's owner developing a fully-functional site from wireframes under a tight deadline. Wrote a vast majority of copy for the site, and optimized images considerably.

Making the site user-friendly for a wide demographic was of particular importance to Glass Elephant. Several design elements and branding options were tested with the client before the current site iteration was finalized.

  • Highlights:
  • Complete brand overhaul; heavy image authoring and editing work
  • Crafted fast, lightweight JavaScript solution for FAQ and Equipment page navigation
  • Assisted with site migration and hosting solutions

Jazz In Austin

Design Consultation / Debugging

Worked with lead developer Aaron Allen to update JazzInAustin's somewhat outdated visual design. Also assisted in testing and debugging the site's custom-built PHP/MySQL login system.

  • Highlights:
  • Revamped outdated stylesheet with modern design elements
  • Assisted lead developer in login system testing and debugging

Candy DeClue Music

Ground-Up build

Full-stack site build, including custom login system and scratch-built calendar management system, as well as site-wide copywriting and image editing.

Creating a striking brand for Ms. DeClue was of particular importance. Many site visitors are either potential clients or audience members who had seen a live show. The final site design and color scheme was chosen from several performance photographs and wardrobe selections.

  • Highlights:
  • Custom login system in PHP/MySQL
  • Scratch-built calendar management system in JavaScript/PHP/MySQL

Full Projects and RESTful APIs

CodePen.io

Widgets, applets, and games beyond the scope of simple experiments, (although there is some overlap). Also several projects making use of APIs from Twitch, Wikimedia, and OpenWeather.

HTML5 <canvas>

CodePen.io

Wide array of snippets and experiments manipulating the HTML5 canvas using vanilla JavaScript. Project explorations include miscellaneous visual effects, particle effects, interactive animations, globalCompositeOperation studies, and game programming.

pleasedtomeet you

I'm a web developer currently living in Austin, producing sites and customer-facing web solutions for clients on a freelance basis. I also occasionally work as a web design consultant.

I'm a fanatic about code and design--one of those that can stay up through the wee hours getting things pixel-perfect.

When I'm not digging through web code, you're likely to find me behind either a game controller or a guitar.
