Web Design Portfolio
The Buckland Museum
The museum needed a complete website redesign, as their existing website was outdated and difficult to maintain. This extensive site includes API integration for online ticketing & reservations and an events calendar, photo and video galleries, and a WooCommerce store. The site is designed so that the museum staff can update it regularly with museum news, educational content, and upcoming events.
The museum owners specifically asked that I include the “Witch’s Mill” photo in the design. I took color inspiration from one of their permanent displays and included playful elements like the wizard hat icon to call out to their inclusion of pop-culture kitsch in their exhibits.
Little Britain Stables
A new equestrian site designed to showcase the offerings and expertise of a horse ranch offering riding lessons, themed parties, and other services. A key requirement was to create a visually compelling and SEO ready site that would enable this 50+ year old ranch to stand out from new startup competitors in the region.
*This site has since been updated by the client with additional content and photos.
The Witcher World
This award-winning gaming fansite was hand coded in PHP / HTML / CSS / XML. The design was inspired by cheesy tabloid news sites (as was much of the content). The website won an international web design competition and was recognized as an official “silver” level fansite by the original game company. While my original domain is no longer live, I’ve uploaded the site in my old-websites archive for posterity. (Note: you will need to enable Flash to experience some of the content).

Email Markup Sample Code
Mobile Optimized Modular Email Template (MOMET) File
This code sample is the Mobile Optimized Modular Email Template (MOMET) that I used for coding standard Scalable and Fluid emails for the American Greetings brand. It contains code snippets for each content element that was used across the brand emails. Basic snippets include a variety of linked images, pre-formatted and styled headline and copy text, along with text-based buttons. Additional code snippets maintained in this file include custom ampscript-driven personalization modules and dynamic content such as abandon card, reminders, and a loyalty program module (meaningful connection status). This and the Minimalist email template was set up to be used on SalesForce Marketing Cloud (Formerly Exact Target) and includes brand custom ampscript with send logging, unique and descriptive aliases on all links, and ampscript variables for personalization.

Minimalist/Base Email Template
This code sample is the base template that I used for coding standard Scalable and Fluid emails for the American Greetings brand. It contains the standard “sticky” elements used in all emails: logo, top and foot navigation, social media, and so on along with placeholders for the most commonly used content elements such as linked images and text-based buttons.
