A Handful of Websites Showcasing Recent Work
From conception to live online event in just 6 weeks. Because of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, many book fairs and festivals in the Los Angeles area were canceled.
I worked with good folks at Books That Make You to pull together an online book fair with live streaming, live chat, live panel discussions, and more to fill the gap.
I built a web server infrastructure that easily handled thousands of concurrent visitors. Integration with an email service provider was crucial because hundreds of signups were captured in a short time frame.
What would a website built in the 80’s look like? Of course, the internet didn’t exist then so this was a fun challenge. I built this website with the folks at Black Chateau Enterprises.
Brandyn needed a blog, connection to his social media accounts, and integration with his email service provider, Constant Contact.
Susan and her team required paid memberships and private area with unique (and stringent) security and privacy requirements to support selling courses. I was the senior developer providing leadership to a team of developers on this one.
WooCommerce was used as the e-commerce component. Integrating the store with memberships and courses required custom menus and custom client account pages.
This fun, interactive site was built to showcase a lot of articles in different categories. It features podcast integration and lots of smartly-done giveaways used as lead magnets for targeted audience building. I was the lead developer on this one.
There’s a lot going on here but performance tuning has this site running quickly without messing up any of the interactive components.
This was a total redesign and overhaul of a website that was no longer functioning correctly. Visitors were being left with a poor first impression.
The new design is far more engaging. We made this website perform much better with much faster page loading times.
As part of the rebuild, we moved this website over to modern cloud hosting.
This was a redesign of an existing website that was several years old.
This client needed a modern, engaging design with eye-catching motion to sync with their brand image as savvy, up-to-date financial advisors.
Like most of the sites that I build, this one also included integration with an email service provider (like MailChimp, ActiveCampaign, Constant Contact, etc.) to help them grow their marketing list.
This was a refresh and redesign of a website that Sarah and I built several years ago.
We made the design more engaging, with a special emphasis on mobile devices. This gives her visitors a much better experience when browsing her website.
Her old hosting provider was really struggling to provide good performance. As part of the redesign, we moved this website over to modern cloud hosting. Her clients are located all over the world so we also utilized a global Content Delivery Network (CDN) to boost worldwide performance. The result was a dramatic improvement in page load times!
The inaugural TEDx ResedaBlvd event was held in late 2019. It was organized by Desireé Duffy who is a notable influencer in the L.A. book scene.
When building a TEDx site you are required to stick with TED branding guidelines. Still, I was able to add some eye-catching motion on to the pages to help this site pop.
The forms were integrated with an email service provider to directly capture subscriber details. A significant number of leads were captured and the event sold out quickly.
Advanced Massage wanted to shift away from insurance-paid toward self-pay clients.
I built an e-commerce store that sells a significant number of gift certificates every month, with immediate fulfillment via download and email.
An SEO campaign got this client on page 1 for their targeted keywords on Google as well as inclusion on the local map pack results.
They take advantage an on-going maintenance plan for this website as well.
Ready to Start?
I’d love to build you a website that we’re both super proud of!
