Chopin Without Piano

June - October 2015

I was hired to create a website for the first American tour of Chopin Without Piano, a play by Polish theater company CENTRALA. This production was supported by major arts grants. My website was intended both to sell tickets and to become an English-language hub for the production. Special attention was given to Lost Pianos, a viral marketing campaign for the production. I was the sole developer on the project, but I collaborated with marketing and content specialists throughout the process to create the ultimate experience.

W. H. Cooke & Co., Inc.

January 2014 - October 2015

I was hired to complete a full redesign of the existing W. H. Cooke site, which at the time was little more than a few descriptive paragrahps and a contact page. I worked remotely to complete this responsive, standards-based redesign and to add much more content to the site. The appearance of the redesign and the content were handled by the company with my feedback. Additionally, I integrated an eCommerce solution using Authorize.Net as the payment gateway to accept client payments for goods. I created and edited documents and graphics when necessary, including launching a quarterly newsletter sent to thousands of subscribers and customers. I performed a holistic SEO analysis, keeping optimization at the forefront of my design. Over a 7 month period, my redesign increased the number of Sessions by 97% and the reduced the Bounce Rate by 19% (Google Analytics).

I founded [redacted] Theater Company in early 2014, and when we were finally ready to launch publicly, I created the website. The censoring effect found throughout is raw CSS/JavaScript, not a plugin. I'm particularly proud of that effect, as I designed and developed the site by myself and am personally repsonsible for most of the content.

Patrick Ross

July 2014

My friend and collaborator, Patrick Ross, asked me to make him a website to showcase his work. I used parallax design principles, full-screen photos, and HTML5 media elements in the site, which I both designed and developed. All content was provided by Patrick.

Mitchell Kyd

December 2013

After creating the first version of my personal website, I sought freelance clients. Fellow freelancer Mitchell Kyd, who is based in my hometown, trusted me to make her a website to serve as a professional hub. I used the front-end framework ZURB Foundation and created a basic CMS written in PHP to power the blog and other dynamically-generated content sections. I was also responsible for the design of the website.
