  • InterPayments

    InterPayments is my second Frontity WordPress theme. The website features a full-width background video and a React built-in calculator for potential clients to witness the advantage of InterPayments' product. The background video—which I edited together with the 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

    My first Frontity WordPress theme that 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-technical users 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.

  • Greetings From Martha's Vineyard Tours

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

  • Electrician U

    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 ACF 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

    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 and a custom post type for projects. React makes the site faster, allows for quicker deployment, and combines npm package components for the gallery and lightbox.

  • Sanctuaries Interior Design

    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 created 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

    The National Widowers' Organization had an out-of-date, unresponsive website that was slow and hard to use.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 better-organized data structures (print and digital resources), social media, and SEO tools.

  • iSectors

    iSectors' website had an aging design, a bloated codebase, disorganized content, and was 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 desktop and mobile display.

  • MV Museum

    Martha's Vineyard Museum had an unresponsive, hard-coded PHP website edited via text editor and FTP.

    I approached them with the proposal to modernize the site by giving it a mobile-friendly design and moving 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

    This client wanted a WordPress website with a custom theme built from a designed PSD.

    I created 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 technology—on the website and across his social media—to market his content to potential clients.

  • AcceptU

    I've been maintaining the website's code since 2018. The original code was quite hard to maintain, and many website sections were hard-coded into the theme. I worked on the theme and opened it up for editing in the WordPress back end. One of the features I added was the plan selection pages, which incorporated Gravity Forms into a multi-step experience for the user.

  • MVesna

    MVesna is a graphic and web designer with expertise in branding and rebranding. We worked together on her website to build a strong brand that 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 portfolio pieces and pop-up contact forms.

  • Dr. Fitness Nutrition

    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 was created with Timber and achieved the goals of the Serbian client—creating awareness of their products for potential commercial and consumer clients.

  • Motivational Interviewing for Certified Financial Planners

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

  • Datavant

    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 daily functionality worked. Additionally, I coded several landing pages for lead generation and supported Datavant's first conference in their field.

  • Sasa Adamovic

    A WordPress website that I built with Flothemes. 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

    A Flothemes website that I managed by offering support to the client regularly. Most of the work entailed sysadmin support, custom code, fixing styles for the client, and consulting on SEO and digital marketing strategy.

  • Vineyard Village at Home

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

  • Transform2Action

    Before contacting me, the client had engaged a developer to create a website based on several provided PSDs. 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

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


    Laurie of LPBPR had several 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 navigation bar. 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

    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 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

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

  • Klica Production

    I created Klica Production as a venture into 3D printed technologies. The company was involved with fashion, smart home products, and audio effects. The site aimed to explain the company and offer a public place for the small team. The site was built on HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and PHP and used geolocation to default the language selection to either English or Serbian. Because of its simplicity, it was also easily optimized.

  • Martha's Vineyard Nonprofits

    At first, the client requested me to move from a static HTML website to a Wix site, so I helped with the technical details. Another large project was that the client used to create a directory of nonprofit organizations in Word, screenshot, and upload them to the website manually. It was neither practical nor useful as the text wasn't selectable or easy to view on mobile devices. Using PHP and the Fat-Free Framework with foundation, I provided a custom back end that could be shared with nonprofits. The client didn't have to continually update the information himself and could have nonprofits keep their information up to date. It was then embedded in an inline frame element on the Wix site, offering nearly seamless integration of the PHP solution in a web builder website. I also helped the client move from Wix to a more membership-based solution.

  • Vall d'Uixo Aquifer Recharge Infographic

    This site was the second for the client, Bold Content, and needed a mobile-friendly interaction and animation. I produced some of the graphics while the client provided others. The behavior was described simply and later achieved through JavaScript, HTML, and CSS to create the desired educational outcome.

  • Las Tablas Del Daimiel Web App

    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 with unique functionalities:
    • The map showed the park's layout and had hot spots that led to other functionality
    • Street-view-like VR 360° explorer
    • Timeline animation of the regrowth of plants and what changes in the environment
    • Simple animation that displayed the national park's impact throughout Europe
    • Gallery
    • 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

    The MVCMS had an outdated, desktop-only website that needed updating to handle visitors from smartphones and other smaller screens. I created a responsive WordPress theme using Bootstrap and customized it 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

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