Experience

  • Amberton HOA Website
    http://www.ambertonhoa.com

    I built a completely custom WordPress website with a members-only area, allowing homeowners to manage accounts on the site and access private pages without having to use the WordPress back end. A profile editor, a user directory, and an announcement blog were developed using the WP API and React. The custom theme also included specialized Gutenberg blocks specifically developed for the website.

  • Portfolio Website
    http://www.algraphicdesign.com

    I developed a SPA portfolio website for a graphic designer with Angular and Fullpage.js Angular component. A custom portfolio component was implemented to display portfolio pieces pulled from a WordPress installation via the WP REST API. I used Angular animations as well as the Angular Router to target specific portfolio pieces from the URL.

  • Trinity Church Website
