Experience

  • Market Modern Responsive Divi Site (Development)
    https://digtialmarketingbootcamp.com

    The client wanted an easy to maintain, plug-and-play style website. So I used the Divi Theme to complete this project. It was a simple landing page site, with links to two different other pages, but focusing on adding a scheduled call to the client’s calendar.

  • Intranet Theme (Development)

    I built a custom WordPress theme that would enable a website to act as an intranet site. Users could upload documents, search employees, save personal information pages (uploading a user photo), and search through the custom file directory.

  • Google Map Report (Development)

    This project allowed the client to connect to a Google map and display a custom, table layout report. The user would select a date from the date field and submit to have a printable report of the events for that day or selected period displayed on their screen.

  • Custom Event Calendar (Development)

    A fully customized calendar that allows users to save events, block out holidays, and even print a daily report of events. Users could opt for an emailed reminder for their saved appointments.

  • Forge Spider Makeover (Development)
    https://forgespider.com

    Recently I redesigned the Forge Spider company website to make it cleaner and more responsive. I tried to make it very simplistic, yet still informative enough to answer basic questions. Also provided SSL, with site and custom email to match domain.
