Experience

  • InterPayments (Development)
    https://interpayments.com

    InterPayments is my second Frontity WordPress theme. The website features a full-width background video and a React built calculator for potential clients to witness the advantage of InterPayments' product. The background video— that I edited together with stock video—is based on a React app that I also wrote to demonstrate the user-experience of the company's product to customers.

  • Linda Jean's Restaurant (Development)
    https://lindajeansrestaurantmv.com

    This was my first Frontity WordPress theme, which implements a React-driven theme and calls on WordPress's REST API to populate the data. It utilizes ACF Pro to provide a fool-proof back end that "non-techies" can easily edit. The menus page features an embedded menu switched via React's built-in state. This website won the Frontity JSNation competition in 2020 (https://frontity.org/blog/announcing-the-winners-of-the-jsnation-competition/).

  • Greetings From Martha's Vineyard Tours (Development)
    http://toursmv.com/

    Greetings From Martha's Vineyard Tours needed a basic website to gain Tripadvisor approval and to gain more clients via a FareHarbor booking implementation. I put together a blazing-fast React site that met the requirements.

  • Electrician U (Development)
    https://electricianu.com

    A WordPress website for an electricians' educational program. The website features LearnDash, MemberPress, and WooCommerce integrations and is built using Elementor with a Timber with Advanced Custom Fields Pro for styles and custom functionality. The website was migrated from Squarespace and the new version was designed and developed on WordPress.

  • Arrowhead Homes MV (Development)
    https://arrowheadhomesmv.com/

    A Frontity-built WordPress theme based on an Adobe XD design. This website features a custom home page "drag and drop" template built with ACF Pro as well as a custom post type for projects. The use of React makes the site faster and allows for quicker deployment, as well as combining NPM package components for the gallery and lightbox.

  • Sanctuaries Interior Design (Development)
    http://sanctuariesinteriordesign.com/

    Sanctuaries Interior Design and Tenderling had a design for a responsive, scroll hijacking website built on WordPress. The example they provided had scroll hijacking only on the desktop. I was able to create a custom WordPress theme that not only met the specification but was more mobile-friendly than the provided example, and the site was optimized better.

  • National Widowers' Organization (Development)
    https://nationalwidowers.org/

    The National Widowers' Organization had an out of date, unresponsive website that was slow and hard to use. I came along and offered my services to create a mobile-friendly custom WordPress theme that allowed the integration of not only better-organized data structures (print and digital resources) but also social media and SEO tools.

  • iSectors (Development)
    http://isectors.com/

    iSectors' website had an aging design, a bloated codebase, disorganized content, and was terribly insecure; strewn across two domains. I took the content, restructured it to create one streamlined website, and built it to be minimalist, secure, and faster. The design was based on their branded brochure and adapted for both desktop and mobile display.

  • MV Museum (Development)
    https://mvmuseum.org

    Martha's Vineyard Museum had an unresponsive, hard-coded PHP website that was edited via text editor and FTP. I approached them with the proposal to modernize the site by giving it a mobile-friendly design and move all their content to the WordPress CMS, custom-designed to fit their usage. The project was finished on time and within budget.

  • Abundance Wealth Planning, LLC (Development)
    https://abundancewp.com

    This client wanted a WordPress website with a custom theme built from a designed PSD. I was able to create the website using Timber, ACF Pro, and Bootstrap 4 within the client's budget and according to specifications. The client also engaged me for digital marketing consultation, and I provided strategies and the technology—on the website and across his social media—to market his content to potential clients.

  • AcceptU (Development)
    https://acceptu.com

    While I didn't write the original code for this website, I've been maintaining it since 2018. The original code was quite hard to maintain and many sections of the website were hard-coded into the theme. I worked on the theme, opening it up for editing in the WordPress back end. One of the features I added was the Plan selection pages, which incorporated a Gravity Form into a multi-step experience for the user.

  • MVesna (Development)
    http://mvesna.com/

    MVesna is a graphic and web designer with expertise in branding and rebranding. We worked together on her website to build a brand that is strong and matches her vision, of which she was very particular. The site is built on WordPress and utilizes many custom templates and post types to allow easy editing and adding of portfolio pieces and pop-up contact forms.

  • Dr. Fitness Nutrition (Development)
    https://drfitnessnutrition.com/

    A WordPress website built with ACF Pro in the style of a premium theme that utilized a page-builder but was very slow and poorly managed. The new version is built with Timber and achieves the goals of the Serbian client of creating awareness of their products for potential commercial and consumer clients.

  • Motivational Interviewing for Certified Financial Planners (Development)
    https://mi4cfp.com

    This was a static HTML landing page for my client, Transform 2 Action, to generate leads directed specifically to a small group of potential clients. It was built without a CMS but using Bootstrap and based on the client's WordPress theme and PSD file.

  • Datavant (Development)
    https://datavant.com

    This website is built with the Ark theme, and I maintained it from 2017 to 2019. I coded the About page's team pop-ups into the theme and ensured the functionality worked on a daily basis. Additionally, I coded several landing pages for lead generation and supporting Datavant's first conference in their field.

  • Sasa Adamovic (Development)
    https://adamovicsasa.com/

    A WordPress website that I manage built with Flo themes. My primary responsibility was consulting with the client regarding hosting, migrating the site to better hosting, and optimizing the site as much as possible within the confines of budget and the theme.

  • Arletta Weddings (Development)
    https://photototable.com/

    Another Flo themes website that I manage and offer support to the client on a regular basis. Most of the work entails sysadmin support, custom code, and fixing styles for the client, as well as consulting on SEO and digital marketing strategy.

  • Vineyard Village at Home (Development)
    https://vineyardvillage.org

    This client had a fairly limited budget, but I was able to provide their website with a much-needed face-lift, transferring it from a static PHP website to a WordPress-backed managed website. The design is simple but follows their aesthetic, and the site provides them with many more features than they had access to in the past.

  • Transform2Action (Development)

    This client had engaged a developer before contacting me to create her website based on several provided PSD. The previous developer had not provided source code, so I had to develop the WordPress theme from scratch and exceeded the previous developer's attempt to match the design. I also worked as a video editor for this client, securing a videographer for her keynote speech and editing it together as if it were a TED talk.

  • Barry Stringfellow (Development)
    https://barrystringfellow.com

    This website was built on a smaller budget for a writer, musician, and fisherman in order to showcase his work and attract interest for his many projects. The website has an almost "newspaper-y" feel, which reflects the writer's long and prestigious experience in writing for the press.

  • LPBPR (Development)

    Laurie of LPBPR had a number of sites on many domains that needed to be combined into a single WordPress website. I designed the site on her logo, which became part of a scroll hijacked animation in the navbar. The site has a striking appearance and is very functional for the client, as it is also linked to many social media channels.

  • Battle Harbour Historic Trust (Development)

    Battle Harbour Historic Trust had an old, unresponsive WordPress theme that was confusing to use. I first updated the site by implementing AngularJS and went through two iterations of the site in that form before switching it back to WordPress with a custom theme that allowed the client to edit content again. In the last iteration, I improved the clarity of pricing and transportation for visitors.

  • New Now Design (Development)

    New Now Design was a part of the Klica Production venture, specifically the fashion line of the company. I built a very simple landing page to use as the public-facing front of the company that primarily sold through boutiques.

  • Klica Production (Development)

    Klica Production was actually a creation of mine, as a venture into 3D printed technologies. The company itself was involved with fashion, smart home products, and audio effects. The site was needed basically to explain the company and offer a public front for the small team. The site is built on HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and PHP and uses geolocation to default the language selection to either English or Serbian. Because of its simplicity, it was also easily optimized.

  • Martha's Vineyard Non-Profits (Development)

    At first the client came to me in order to move from a static HTML website to a Wix site. I helped with the technical details of this migration. Another large task was that the client used to create a directory of non-profit organizations in Word and then screenshot them and upload them to the website manually. This was neither practical nor useful as the text wasn't select-able nor was it easy to view on mobile devices. Using PHP and the Fat-Free Framework with Foundation I was able to provide a custom back end that could be shared with non-profits so that the client didn't have to always update the information himself and could have non-profits keep their information up-to-date. This was then embedded in an iframe element on the Wix site, offering a nearly seamless integration of the PHP solution in a web builder website. I later helped the client move from Wix to a more membership-based solution.

  • Vall d'Uixo Aquifer Recharge Infographic (Development)

    This site was the second for the client Bold Content and needed a mobile-friendly interaction and animation. Some of the graphics were produced by me; others were provided by the client and the behavior was simply described and then later achieved through JavaScript, HTML, and CSS to create the desired educational result.

  • Las Tablas Del Daimiel Web App (Development)

    The first project I developed for Bold Content was the Las Tablas Del Daimiel web app. This app was built in AngularJS and featured six sections that had a unique functionality: The map shows the layout of the park and has hot spots that lead to other functionality; one section featured a "street-view-like" VR 360° explorer; other section featured a timeline animation of the regrowth of plants and what changes in the environment; another section had a simple animation and displayed the national park's impact throughout Europe; the second to last section featured a gallery; and lastly, one section had animated flip cards. The app was mobile-friendly and built with many AngularJS modules but still optimized well for online deployment.

  • Martha's Vineyard Chamber Music Society (Development)

    The MVCMS had an out-dated, desktop-only website that needed updating in order to handle visitors from smartphones and other smaller screens. I created a responsive WordPress theme using Bootstrap and customized heavily to add a modern and striking visual appearance that was brightly colored and featured a background image based on the annual give-away raffle painting.

  • Connected (Development)

    Connected was a mindfulness, interactive eBook built on the Inkling platform, which enabled reading and interacting in the Inkling app as well as publication as an iOS app to devices. Using my experience from Open Air Publishing, I easily created the eBook on the Inkling platform and my skills in CSS helped me create an appearance that almost perfectly matched the designs provided by the client.
