- iSectors WordPress Theme (Development)http://isectors.com/
iSectors' website had an aging design, a bloated codebase, disorganized content, and was terribly insecure; strewn across two domains. David 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.

- New Now Design (Development)http://newnowdesign.com/
New Now Design was a part of the Klica Production venture; specifically the fashion line of the company. David built a very simple landing page for use as a public facing front of the company that sold primarily through boutiques.
- 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 desktop. David 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The National Widowers' Organization had an out of date, unresponsive website that was slow and hard to use. David came along and offered his services to create a mobile-friendly custom WordPress theme that allowed for the integration of not only better-organized data structures (print and digital resources) and social media and SEO tools.
- Battle Harbour Historic Trust (Development)http://battleharbour.com/
Battle Harbour Historic Trust had an old, unresponsive WordPress theme that was confusing to use. David 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. On the last iteration, David improved the clarity of pricing and transportation for visitors.

- LPBPR (Development)http://personalprpro.net/
Laurie of LPBPR had a number of sites on many domains that needed to be combined into a single WordPress website. David 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.
- Glass Planner (Development)http://sliderulesoftware.com/glassplanner/
The Glass Planner website is a simple AngularJS website to display information about the app, the team that made it, tutorials, press kit, and contact form. The tutorials were also produced and edited by David.

- Las Tablas Del Daimiel Web App (Development)http://artlyticalmedia.com/portfolio_piece/tablas-del-daimiel-national-park-infographic/
Bold Content's first project with David was the Las Tablas Del Daimiel web app. This app was built in AngularJS and featured 6 sections that had 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; another section featured a timeline animation of the regrowth of plants and what changes in the environment; another section had a simple animation and displayed throughout Europe the national park's impact; 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.
