This website is for a New Home Builder in the Austin, TX area. This client is growing is size and felt the need to expand online in order to reach a larger audience.

The Goof Board website is an ecommerce website for a new surfing product. I had worked previously with this same client on their website so they wanted to me to work on this new endeavor.

Graphics and video were done by the client’s outside sources. I managed a group of developers that setup of the integrated shopping cart system. I am also in the process of a separate project for link building and to optimize the site for search engines.

Coremetrics Online Analytics

February 12th, 2009 Comments off

I was hired to work for Coremetrics to manage their demo system for their Software as a Service (SaaS) Online Web Analytics reporting suite. During my time there I designed a Portable Demo System that utilized a self contained Apache/PHP/MySQL server that could be distributed via a zip file. After unzipping the file a user simply double clicked an .exe file to start the server, no installation or configuration was needed on the user’s computer.

This Portable Demo system contained a completely dynamic copy of the Online Anayltics Application and provided ~90% of the functionality of the real product. The Portable Demo system allowed the user to change the data stories within the demo via Excel in order to better demonstrate the power of individual features and the overall product. The system was designed to accommodate multiple data sets for different industries along with support for Localization and Internationalization.

While I initially was the only designer/developer of this project I grew to become the project lead as a team of 5 developers was developed to complete the initial 1.0 release. The project spanned 2 of the 3 years that I worked for Coremetrics and proved to be an invaluable sales tool for the company.

The demo project that worked on was an internal project and is not available to the general public for viewing. The Coremetrics website can be viewed at

The Beach House WordPress Theme is a custom theme with a cool and relaxing beach feel to it. The theme was originally designed to advertise a summer condo rental in sunny Southern California and was later released for free to the WordPress community. Since its release back in June 2006 it has been downloaded thousands of times and used on thousands of WordPress blogs.

The Beach House Theme has its own preview site at:

Clipper Transportation

February 12th, 2009 Comments off

The Clipper Transportation website was a redesign project that I was assigned when working for AT&T’s small business website division. The client was unsatisfied with the initial design by our team and I was assigned the task of gathering the requirements in order to fit the client’s needs. The client wanted their company viewed as a fun and lively transportation company to travel with.

I suggested a cartoonish style and the client agreed to try it out. After providing my initial mockup the client was very pleased and gave the thumbs up to change the site to my design. The site has used this design for the last 3 years.

Learning Tree

February 12th, 2009 Comments off

I worked for Learning Tree in a full time capacity. During my time there I did content updates to the website using a customer-build database system that took content from the printed catalog and turned it into copy for the web. I also did graphic updates using Photoshop and Flash. I also worked on a project to convert the website from a table-based design to a CSS based design for server load and SEO purposes.
