American Experience

Skills

HTML, CSS

eueBuzz

Summary

Automata Studios hired me to design the CSS for this PBS/WGBH website.  It was a challenge to match the Photoshop comps, but we pulled it off for all the popular browsers.

 

eyeBuzz

Skills

Adobe Flash, including ActionScript

eueBuzz

Summary

eyeBuzz is a foray into the exciting world of optical illusions. Intended as an educational piece, this bright and fun website brings not only illusions to light, but also the scientists who discovered or invented them.  Information is presented with interactive maps, animated timelines, scrolling text areas, and interactive illusions that beckon, “play with me!”  This site is a work in progress.

Summary

Keystone Staffing was one of my earliest freelance accounts.  Over the years, we worked together on HTML websites, Flash websites, a desktop application, and more.

 

Bayliner

Skills

HTML, CSS, Adobe Photoshop and Flash

Bayliner

Summary

Many moons ago, Bayliner experimented with three complete website build-outs, all of them my designs.  Their parent company, US Marine, was pleased with the work, a Flash-heavy experience that pulled data dynamically.  This occurred during a corporate transition in which my employer at the time, Automark, spun off a boats-only entity, Boat Ventures (now Channel Blade).  I also supervised the production of US Marine’s Trophy website during this time.

 

Airtraveler.com

Skills

HTML, CSS, Adobe Photoshop and Flash, including ActionScript

Airtraveler.com

Summary

Airtraveler.com was designed and originally built by another team at my then-employer, DSI. My role here included ongoing maintenance in addition to HTML, CSS, and Flash development as new sections were created.

 

info2eat.com

Skills

HTML, CSS, Adobe Photoshop and Flash, including ActionScript

info2eat.com

Summary

No longer active, info2eat.com was a start-up that became the most diverse of my freelance accounts at the time.  My contributions included everything from promotional brainstorming and games to the usual graphics and web development.

 

Maxum

Skills

HTML, CSS, Adobe Photoshop and Flash

Maxum Maxum

Summary

US Marine’s Maxum website was a wonderful project from the get go. Their ad agency was amenable to compromise when technology proved it necessary.  Thanks to my then employer’s (Automark’s) prior success with US Marine’s Data Input System, dynamic connectivity was relatively easy — though in the case of Maxum, we went the extra mile and developed a custom hybrid solution of Flash and HTML to preserve US Marine’s branding.  This was in the early days of Flash (version 4), when things weren’t as easy to program in this way as they are now.

 

MyHotrods.com

Skills

HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Adobe Photoshop

MyHotrods.com

Summary

A freelance client commissioned this website as a gift for her father.  He and his son purchase hotrods, fix them up, then sell the ones they can part with.  We were pleased to see the domain MyHotrods.com was available, so I put together the design and subcontracted a colleague with PHP expertise to write the back end.  The website is now defunct, but was configurable via an admin tool that allowed for the creation and management of vehicles in the database.

 

DisasterPlanning.com

Skills

HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Adobe Photoshop and Flash, including ActionScript

DisasterPlanning.com

Summary

Massey Enterprises was my first job out of college.  My efforts there began with word processing and grew into a self-taught career in multimedia development, which began with the DisasterPlanning.com site and a CD-ROM sales tool.  Massey’s Pre-fire / Disaster Plans set the standard for instructional manuals designed to assist firefighters in their duties.  The Massey site has seen many revisions and continues to evolve.  The current version is no longer mine, but this early version represented the company for a decade.

 

VaBeachDems.com

Skills

HTML, CSS, and Adobe Photoshop

VaBeachDems.com

Summary

I feel obliged to state the typical caveat: “the views expressed by the Virginia Beach Democrats do not necessarily reflect my own.”  This was my largest and longest-running freelance account at the time, active for six years before closing shop (it is now maintained under a different domain name and logo by another company, effectively not the same site).  The project was a delight from start to finish.
